Considering picking up a PowerMac G5 1.8 GHz system and using it as my daily driver.
I'd really recommend at least 2,0 GHz model.Quote:
1. Seems like the best overall card for sheer performance is the Radeon X1950Pro. Is that true?
As long as you don't need OSX... yes, but you lose OF and boot menu. That means you won't be able to boot from USB, for example. Aand... I've tried two X1950's so far (at least one is 100% working) and had no luck with MorphOS supporting it. Going to try with yet another one, probably this week.Quote:
2. Should I buy a better less supported video card that will be supported soon?
Not really sure when we're going to get 3D support for Radeon HD cards, so it's up to you. But you could always go for the X1950 and see if there's any AGP HD 3850 around, just in case.
