Hi Guys, A friend just gave me his nvidia 6800 from his G5. He said there might be a voltage mod I'd have to make, but I can't find anything on it. Does anyone know if I can use this graphics card on my Quicksilver G4 733Mhz? I tried installing the nvidia drivers but the install disk wouldn't allow it. "Can't install on this model Mac".
Well that card is designed for a 8xpro agp slot. You need to first tape over the correct pin to convince you mac that it is a 4x. Also, that card take a TON of juice to operate. If you have extras like lights, fans, or hds, you may find yourself with not enough juice to run it. Good luck, I would love to see one of these run in an older mac. One other thing. You wont get the same performance because of that 4x bottleneck. Keep us posted, I wanna see this thing run! -maestro
