Mac Pro 1.1 Change out CPU
My Mac Pro 1.1, with 2-2,66Ghz dual-core Intel Xeon processors is not working proper anymore. I would like to change out the CPU's. instead I'll get 2 Xeon Quad x5355 CPU's and push up my system to an 8 core. I'm told it should work by my technical dealer, but I'm not sure if the power supply will supply enough power.
I would also like to change my graphics card, which should i get? My dealer recommend an ATI 5870 or ATI 4870. How loud are they compared to NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT? or which would you recommend? Also how can I find the information on what works.
Can someone with experience in changing out the CPU's on the Mac Pro systems help me here.
i just want to know, if my Mac will work with the new CPU boost, and which graphics card you recommend?
