Hi, Ive recently switched to Mac after coming into possession of a Mac Pro.I don't know how old it is but the model number is A1186.

I'm finding that the internet is noticably slower to browse than on my windows machine.The windows machine has lower specs to the mac pro in every way except it has a 512mb radeon hd3650 but the mac pro has a 256mb NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT.

Mac specs are as follows:

Hardware Overview:
Model Name: Mac Pro
Model Identifier: MacPro1,1
Processor Name: Dual-Core Intel Xeon
Processor Speed: 2.66 GHz
Number Of Processors: 2
Total Number Of Cores: 4
L2 Cache (per processor): 4 MB
Memory: 6 GB
Bus Speed: 1.33 GHz
Boot ROM Version: MP11.005C.B08
SMC Version (system): 1.7f10
Serial Number (system): CK7271TJY3P
Hardware UUID: 00000000-0000-1000-8000-0017F20B7200

Im wondering if the video card is why my web browsing is slow and if so, can anyone recommend a low priced upgrade.Id probably get it from ebay.

Also, is there some kind of a list of mac-compatible video cards somewhere?

QUOTE Thanks
