  • Yeah...well thats what I thought also but Apple said they should all be the same.
  • Ok I talked to apple and acutally they had a good point...He said it may be the fact that I have uneven ram. When I picked up my machine from the Apple Store I asked for a Gig of Ram and so they ADDED a gig of ram. This made my ram look like 2: 25…

  • Quote: Originally posted by 1douglask If that works for you that great! In my case the 6800, many of us are waiting for, is necessary for the 30" display that goes with my G5 2.5. No 6800 no display. Yeah your right I'm on 23"s. This is a…
  • Hello, I ordered a G5 2.5 with the nVidia 6800 on 8/30. My ship date was 10/5. Apple offered me an option to exchange my nVidia for a 9600 XT and then ship me the 6800 later. I went ahead and did this becasue I believe, and sorry if this is not…
