Video Cards, Monitors, & Displays / Re: powermac G5 graphics card question
« Last post by darthnVader on December 02, 2018, 06:55:55 AM »
just a quick question for those that have the experience + knowledge to comment

is it worth the time/effort to flash a Geforce GT 6600 in order to replace a Radeon 9800 Pro?
(for use in a powermac G5)

i know the 9800pro was from early 2003, and the 6600GT is from later in 2004, so its kind of like jumping up a year in technology..
and the 6600GT was tweaked for gaming etc by manufacturers wasnt it?

is it worth the time effort? will it make a difference in day to day use working in osx software?

The 6600 isn't really an upgrade from a 9800pro, one was a flagship card, the other was a mid end solution.

The 6800 Ultra would be a nice upgrade, and a 6800 GT would be around the same as the 9800Pro.

Great!
Thanks Gary.

Also when i read thats from Intego i was reminded of something...then i saw that in the comments:

"The uploader is Jay Vrijenhoek, one of the security staff at Intego, the company that wrote this and the other two Intego packages uploaded (NetBarrier and VirusBarrier) with the company's permission - consider them officially free, officially unsupported gifts Smile

More information here: https://www.intego.com/mac-security-blog/mac-os-9-some-love-for-the-clas...
"

I personally try to support companys that still care about PowerPC.
I just bought Diskwarrior5!

On OS9 I use "Personal Backup" 2.0.1
It's fast, painless and reliable. Find it here:  http://macintoshgarden.org/apps/personal-backup

It's the closest thing to having Time Machine for OS 7-9

My 1.42GHz mini is booting now as well.  Thanks everyone -- I was really wanting to get a Mac running something of the old era, and this does the trick.  I was going to resort to running it in an emulator on a Raspberry Pi, but this is much better.  I even have it triple booting to Leopard and Tiger, which helps if I want to transfer stuff to it.

I've got a Sabrent USB External Stereo Sound Adapter on the way, so I'll update thatguychad if that works as well.  [Update] No-go on this -- it doesn't appear to give me any system sound.  I wonder if it matters if it's plugged directly into the mini -- I had it plugged into a USB hub.  I also clicked on a checkbox in the 'input levels' of the sound control panel and it locked the system up while cranking the fans to full blast -- don't recommend that.

Regarding pram I can second that experience even on my G4 MDD machine.
With a depleted pram battery I got weird issues that I thought we're coming from bad memory as I couldn't even run programs anymore.
So it seems the first to look after.

I definitely learned that the battery are li-on batteries but not rechargeable as I thought so they will have to be replaced sooner than you might think.

Hey velvetcave... glad you got things sorted out! Gary is always the voice of reason when things start going haywire!! Haha! For some  reason i never saw this post or would have joined in the fun! ;D This is moot at this point but I'll throw a few things out there anyway.

Usually when some little oddball problem like this arises in PT they recommend that you trash your pref files. It's kind of like flushing the PT toilet and will rebuild upon startup. ;D

Like Gary mentioned... It can be worthwhile to make sure that your punches/ edits take place at the zero-crossing points to prevent clicks etc. Fades and crossfades certainly help here however they just 'cover up' the clicks so you don't hear them.  On a heavily edited track containing tons of crossfades/fades I never COMPLETELY trust the consolidation process and usually prefer to bounce to a fresh track where I can hear whats happening in realtime. Is it possible that your viola tracks contain the most editing?? Maybe that's why your problems showed up within the viola section?? Just a guess! ;D

They used to advise that you open the PT program first THEN open your session/ templet instead of launching the program by clicking on session file... don't know if that's B.S. or not but I've been following that advise since. ;D

Anyway... Seems all good now. The kids around here are quite helpful! Would love to hear more about your whole 'String Orchestra' process!! ;D
