    What PCI/PCI-X SATA cards are bootable, besides the Firmteks?

    I've got a pair of Seagate Barracuda 7200.8 drives and a 2-port Firmtek card now. I'd like to install another SATA drive inside my...

    Don't overclock - undervolt! My Giga dual 1.33 GHz wouldn't overclock at all at the rated voltage, but it runs nicely at full rated speed with the CPU core voltage reduced by 0.1 V.

    Got a 9600 from that Other Worthy Competitor for my DA. Not bad for the money, but it's not 100% bulletproof compatible. It does most everything I need.

    I also picked up a flashed BFG nVIDIA 6200...

    A dual G4 upgrade will make a tremendous difference in Photoshop. I love the Giga dual 1.33 GHz in my Digital Audio tower. But with a Sawtooth or Gigabit Ethernet, the 100 MHz front side bus limits...

    I've upgraded a host of Macs and Mac clones, and I never, ever get rid of the original CPU cards. It's called insurance. That's saved my bacon a couple of times when the upgrades started...

    My G4 DA 533 (single CPU) didn't have the CPU fan and heat sink shroud when I bought it in 2001 - it didn't need them.

    I've had very good results with the SeriTek 1S2 and a pair of Seagate drives in my DA G4. The interface will be faster than the drives. Don't be confused by the "latest, greatest" FUD about SATA 2.

    Kaye is right again. I have personally had a PowerCenter Pro running stably at 66 MHz bus speed. But I think 60 MHz is way fast for a PTP. You should be happy to get that!

    Yeah, for $600 you could buy a new PC, but then you'd have a PC. :rolleyes:

    Yeah, I'd agree with that. I had another brand single G4/1.33 GHz upgrade in my DA until I broke it (doh!). The Giga dual G4/1.33 GHz doesn't seem much faster in some tasks, but the key difference is...

    It depends on the application. Programs that use a large chunk of memory will benefit more from a large L3. These days, that's most programs. :( Figure anything dealing with multimedia...

    I always keep the old CPU, just in case. This came in handy when I screwed up the OWC 1.33 GHz card in my Digital Audio.

    Sounds pretty foolish. I almost had my wife stop by their booth, but I guess she would have come back empty-handed.
