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

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?

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