    Wink Fixed my G5!
    Just fixed my G5! I thought it was a dead motherboard, but it was: half of my ram, and a fan that was bad.

    Upgrades Done/To Do:

    Flash 256MB GeForce 6200 & Install - NEED TO DO
    Add 3GB of XMS 400 RAM (Silver Heatspreader) - DONE
    Add 1GB of XMS 400 RAM (Silver Heatspreader) - ORDERED, HAS NOT ARRIVED
    Add 750GB Samsung HD753LJ HDD - DONE
    Replace Fan - Done
    Add Black 4 Port USB 2.0 Card - ORDERED, HAS NOT ARRIVED
    Install Leopard - DONE

    It's a June 2004 Dual 2GHz.

    Congratulations.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    So you are going to be able to get a non apple video card to work? Or by flash did you mean you were going to flash it to the necessary specifications so that it would work on the G5?

    Flash a non-apple graphics card to be used. Don't really know what I'm going to use it for. I can figure something out though.
