Old Mac Pro - lost one HD awhile back - now maybe the video board.

Maybe B.E.R. - will see - and an excuse to to get an eight core replacement. As if I need it ..

I know y'all love that Apple shiz ;)

Sorry Jerry .... screwed up here on the sys description.

Have a clapped-out Power Mac G5 - nice shiz 7 years ago. Second drive failure and now a graphics card (which I will replace for ~$150 USD).

Popped in a new drive this afternoon - WD 500 GB SATA for $60 - not bad. Will limp by on the iffy g-card for a few more days until the replacement arrives.

Just looking for an excuse to buy a new Intel based Mac Pro and a 30 inch display (which I really don't need - but that has never stopped me before).

Instead, maybe I'll blow some bucks on a large flat screen - those pix Jocke posted and the displays at Fry's here have me thinkin'
