Just wondering if anyone has had any similar issues.
I have an early 2008 Mac Pro. I had the custom installed NVidia 8800 graphics card fail after 6 months. Apple replaced it free.
The second one has been giving me issues for years now. My computer crashes alot. Hard drives won't wake up from sleep, which of course causes me to restart alot. And when I do restart I have to do it manually multiple times to get the computer OS to boot. Like 8-10 times. And this happens a couple times a week.
At first I thought it might be my Sonnet esata cards working my multiple hard drives but after running a test it came back all issues with the 8800 graphics card.
Anyone have any thoughts? I was thinking of bringing it to the Apple store again, but at this point I know I'm past my Applecare.
Does anyone know new graphics cards that would work well for this Early 2008 Mac Pro model? I work in video editing and music production.
Thanks so much for any info or help. I've been frustrated yet dealing with it for a couple years now and need to finally figure it out. I really appreciate it!
