If you're about to buy a G5, consider a deal with me...

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Here it is, up front: I want to buy an ATI 9800 XT. Here it also is, up front: the Mac version is currently only available as a BTO option in the newest G5s.

You can see where I'm going with this.

If you are considering buying a G5 powermac in the near future, consider this offer.

I currently have a Geforce FX5200 Ultra. Not a bad card, but isn't the greatest for UT2k4 (the Assault maps in particular). If you are satisfied with a 5200, here's the deal: You buy your new G5 with the 9800XT as your graphics card. I ship my 5200 to you, along with a check for $400. ($50 for your worship-worthy generosity and empathy)

Before I fully consider this, I have to ask something: will I have to have new drivers? If I do, can I download them? If not, are there files that the buyer of the new G5 can email to me?

Right now, this is ONLY AN IDEA! . But if someone will consider this, I'll give more thought on my part to it.
