    Will a 30" cinema display work on a powermac 1.6GHZ
    Hi

    Does anyone know if a 30" cinema display will work on a powermac 1.6 GHZ (roughly two years old), its says it needs PCI Express?? however looking on the apple support site for info the support is not too clear.

    Here is the basic spec of the machine

    Machine Name: Power Mac G5
    Machine Model: PowerMac7,2
    CPU Type: PowerPC 970 (2.2)
    Number Of CPUs: 1
    CPU Speed: 1.6 GHz
    L2 Cache (per CPU): 512 KB
    Memory: 1.5 GB
    Bus Speed: 800 MHz
    Chipset Model: GeForce FX 5200

    i know i need to upgrade the graphics card but is this possible.

    thanks for the advice

    You need the upgraded GFX card which will support the (dual channel)? DVI port

    Thanks Alex, is something like the nNvidia Geforce 6600 Graphics Upgrade Kit ok. Its 256 MB does the G5 i have allow me to upgrade so?

    just that i'm sure i read somewhere that i can only go up to 128 MB.

    thanks

    The 6600 LE model will run the 30" display.
    Both the 128 and 256mb models.
