    Does x16 vs. x8 speed make a difference in terms of perceived real-life performance on OSX or MorphOS?


    Afaik no. I´ve read an article on Computerbase.de some years ago. They tested GFX Card with 16x and 8x PCI Speed and there was a difference of less then 3% in Games. Even today the fastest GFX Card not much worse in 8x compared to 16x.

    But for modern GFX Cards PCIE 1 and 2 could be a bottleneck.

    @Doffo So you are using two GFX Cards in your G5? One Nvidia Mac and a Radeon PC?

    Oh and by the way does somebody know what is the latest Radeon supported by OSX 10.5.8 PPC?
