    You do not indicate what you want to upgrade. Is it a video card or perhaps editing apps? You are dealing with a very old system and a very outdated OS version. I suggest you check out Mac Pro | MacRumors Forums

    Do some reading. There are some ways to upgrade your system and there will be recommendations for video cards and apps.

    Recommend using Onyx to clean your Mac.

    Lisa: thank you for your reply. I am aware of the age of the Mac Pro A1186 but I was interested in the video card that would best interact with this old machine. Thanks again for your reply.

    Take a look at these options: GPU Compatibility List for cMP | MacRumors Forums

    Another bunch of information: Mac Pro 1,1 10.9.2 (Tiamo) Graphic Card Suggestions | MacRumors Forums

    I have a MP 5,1 With a Nvidia GTX 780 6GB and I running Mojave or Catalina (I have two startup drives.). I have done several flash updates to the BIOS to get Mojave and Catalina to work. But one nice thing is Apple supplies drivers for Nvidia cards up to the 780 and it is metal compatible which is used when encoding video. I run Adobe Premier Pro CC on my 5,1.
