Mac Pro :: Installing Radeon Video Card - Where To Plug In

Feb 28, 2008

I bought a Radeon 9800 Pro video card form my Power Mac G5 with dual processors. It comes furnished with a power splitter cord and says to plug it into the power supply or hard drive. I cannot find any place where this will plug in. The instructions that came with it are very vague and give no indication as to where this power source might actually be located.

Windows On Mac :: Installing Radeon Hd4870 - Only Gaming

Feb 14, 2009

i want to install a hd4870 card for windows only gaming. from the research that i have done it looks like i can do it, but the one thing that has me second guessing the whole thing is the two 75W 6-pin PCI Express connectors that are needed. i'm a bit of a noob in this area and i'm not sure what those are, if i have them, or if they are connectors that i need. i've searched the forums and haven't found the answers that i need, so if you can help me out, hold my hand if you will, my hd2600 kinda rig is a 2008 macPro 2.8ghz with 6g ram

Hardware :: AGP Graphic Card - Radeon 9800

May 2, 2010

. I have a G4 Power Mac running OS 10.5.8. Three years ago I changed my AGP 4X Graphics Card that came with the computer. It was an ATI Radeon 9000 Pro. I installed a new Graphics Accelerator Card Radeon 9800 Pro Mac Edition. For the past three years it worked beautifully with clear sharp 3D imaging. However, on Monday April 26, my monitor started showing vertical and horizontal flickering wavy lines. I thought it was my monitor that went bad, so I tried another monitor from another Mac and it did the same thing. Luckily I kept my old AGP card that I removed. I reinstalled my old card and the monitor is showing perfect with no wavy flickering lines. Can anyone tell me what is the problem? Do I have to buy another Graphic Card? The Radeon 9800 was great for playing games with 3D imaging.

Mac :: Early 2008 Mac Pro Graphics Card - ATI Radeon HD 4870

Apr 6, 2009

I recently just purchased one of the early 2008 Mac Pro Desktops, model number MA970LL/A and am trying to upgrade the video card in it. It comes standard with an ATI Radeon HD 2600 xt, and I would like to upgrade to an ATI Radeon HD 4870. I don't know that it will work though, I know that the NVIDEA that comes standard in the early 2009 Mac Pro does not work in the early 2008 Model. Does anyone have any information on this or know if that will work?

IMac :: 27" - Performance On ATI Radeon 4670 Card

Jun 14, 2010

I'm buying a 27" iMac. I plan on installing windows 7 and running some Windows games on it. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how the performance is on the ATI Radeon 256 MB card. All of the online reviews are for the 512 MB one. I'm not looking for super high performance or what not, but playability and graphics to look decent. Like for example, will Crysis be playable?

I'm worried about too much heat and wearing out fans in both the card and my Mac.

Below are the conditions, but first:

-Is it normal for this kind of card to run ALL the time? How do I know if it's acting correctly?

-Given the heat and fan speed info below, are my Mac and internal drives OK?

-Am I risking any breakdowns? Due to heat or fans running too much... or?

-Do all graphics cards cause the fans to run like this? Is there a cooler card out there?

IMac :: ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT Card Sufficient To Run Final Cut Studio

Jun 3, 2010

first time poster; I've recently acquired a iMac(8,1) and I was hoping to use it to edit video footage. I'm debating whether I should purchase Final Cut Studio. I was told it wouldn't really be worth it unless the graphics card was Dedicated as opposed to Integrated.

I'm not sure if the computers powerful enough to run studio - or perhaps just Final Cut Pro. The Graphics card is a ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT. Is this graphics card sufficient to run Final Cut studio?

Mac Pro :: Installing HIS Radeon Hard Drive 4870 512MB DDR5 In 2006 Model?

Jul 29, 2009

I bought HIS Radeon HD4870 512MB DDR5 for my Mac Pro 2006 1.1. The first problem I've found it that card will not fit to slot 1, because of too long screws. So I installed it in slot 2, leaving 7300GT in slot 1. The next problem was how to get rid of these power cables - I've tried the more elegant way taking that molex adapter under HDD trays, but cables where too short So I installed them on the right of Superdrive's tray. Now on Mac OS X I got kernel panic (probably the injector thing). On Windows Vista card is detected, but automatically disabled (probably not enough power or just PCI-EX 1x slot is not compatible). Here are photos from the operation. I'll try to install Accelero S1 rev. 2 with Noctua 120 mm fan and will see how things go I've also ordered two special Apple PCI-EX power connectors from Austria.

IMac :: Won't Upgrade Graphics Card ATI Radeon 2600 Pro To Geforce 8800 GT

Nov 14, 2008

I purchased my Mac a few weeks ago, wanting to both upgrade my computer.......and play Diablo 3. I do always want the best out of my systems and the person who sold me the mac told me it would be fairly easy to upgrade the card...well he was wrong. He also told me a few days later not to worry about upgrading since the system is already great.

I went to a local Mac store and asked about the upgrade and found out it would be close to or above a grand for the part from Apple and the labor.

Heres the breakdown:

$875 - Card
$130 - Labor
$15 - Shipping (from apple)

Are there any other ways to find this part online cheaper and just hopefully pay for the labor?

I just really dont want to pay a grand just to upgrade my damn video card, and I know within the new year Apple will release a much better fast computer and I'll be mad. I really wish it wasn't such a hard upgrade.

Desktops :: Need A Video Card/Replace A Video Card?

Sep 4, 2009

Ok so I have a old Mac Performa 640CD/Dos that I am trying to to get up and running again. I had a monitor for it but it fell off the couch and broke. So I thought maybe I can use an adapter with it in order to use PC VGA monitor. Well after getting the first adapter and trying it, no luck, then I tried one that had dip switches on it. Tried 640 x 480, 800 x 600, almost all the dip switch combination with no luck on getting anything on the screen. Could it be that I might have a bad video card and it needs replaced? Or is this particular model not compatible with PC VGA monitors?

IMac :: Nvidia / ATI Radeon For Video Editing?

Nov 26, 2009

My cousin is considering getting a new iMac, and he's not sure if he should go with the $1199 model that comes with an Nvidia GeForce 9400M or the $1499 model that has an ATI Radeon HD 4670. He's going to be doing a lot of video editing with Final Cut and Motion, and not so much 3D gaming. But perhaps some 3D modeling and animation. Is it worth the extra $300 for the ATI graphics card, or will he find that the Nvidia card is good enough for what he wants?

Mac Pro :: Does A Video Card Always Have To Be The Mac Version Of That Card

Apr 28, 2010

I see here that my Mac Pro (Early 2008) is compatable with:

ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT
NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT
NVIDIA Quadro FX 5600
ATI Radeon HD 4870

It looks like in many cases there's two versions, and the mac version costs about 10x as much on ebay and in stores. Is that accurate, or is one of these models mac and pc compatable, and therefore the laws of supply and demand work in my favour?

(fyi: I just want the cheapest one, I don't do heavy GPU work)

Mac Pro :: Apple Cinema Displays Will Not Plug Into Card Side By Side

Aug 25, 2014

This seems an odd problem so I may be missing something -- but the connectors on my two Apple Cinema Displays will not plug into the card side by side.  The plastic casing is just a tad too bulky, so you can't quite get the second connector in if the first plug is filled.   It's the card that originally came with the computer, a Mac Pro 1,1.

MacBook Pro :: Won't Use The Iphone's Audio Plug As External Plug

Jun 12, 2010

I was wondering if there was a way to use the iPhone's audio jack as an external jack for the macbook pro via USB or so, as i own the 13 inch model, that only offers one jack.

I want to use garage band just trying out a bit and i'd need an extra jack for the headphones, otherwise the microphone will record what's played over the internal speakers.

EDIT: I forgot to say that I already tried things like AirPhones, meaning wireless stream to iphone. But there's unfortunately few moments of latency, so i hardly can use it for recording.
