Dear mr.Gordeguide I have a problem and i was wondering if you would know an answer. I recently bought a G5 (DP 1800) I have old PCI cards from my 9600 mac but they won't fit.
The PCI cards have about one 11 row and one 58 row counting from the end.
The G5 PCI connector about 40*68*11 row input, counting from the end.
I read your great email remark about PCI and voltage and I was thinking what if I bend the iron front of the PCI card and put it in the PCI connector.
I could think of 3 options (with the risk of voltage damage)
I can put the 11 row PCI in the 40 G5 connector row and
the 68 PCI row in the 68 G5 connector row.
Or turn the PCI card around it would probably fit but
the PCI cards front would be backwards inside the C5.
Look for an extension cable form PCI G5 to old PCI.
The cards are old PCI Telecast Radius, miro motion DC30 and video monitor cards al 3.3v if you have any suggestions/remarks I would be very thankful.
Thanks for that, I'll be upgrading my stereo speakersand probably also changing rom my JVC amplifier to a second hand tuner and want to find something used and inexpensive of course that sounds like Bang & Olufsen (yes I know I'm a dreamer) or you may have a better suggestion. gordguide - in the meantime I wish you a great Christmas and New Year.
Hi gordguide! FYI JUST IN CASE YOU DIDN'T NOTICE MY FINAL POST, here's a copy: To everyone who provided advice and information and who might still be interested in the outcome... as advised I purchased a good quality 35 mm cable and connected my macmini directly to my stereo system amplifier. Even though the speakers on my stereo need to be upgraded to provide the level of sound I'm looking for, this one step has permitted me to return the Bose Computer speakers to Costco and is providing higher quality sound than I was getting using the Bose speakers attached to my computer. This has proven to be the best and most economical solution. Thanks for all the help!!
Also I'm not sure how private any of these communications actually are. So instead I'll email what I have to say. Of course email isn't really that private either. But I guess it will be sufficient for what I have to say to you.
So, I've returned to the suggestions of a few (especially you and digiddog & now Vexel is of the same opinion too) to focus on building up my sound system for music. This has been quite an education and even if I just take back the BOSE speakers and run all sound through my sound system - (meaning I won't actually improve the sound actually coming through the Mac at all) I have a much better idea about sound systems for both PCs and Stereo systems than I've never had before.
Anyway, you can't imagine how much I appreciate that you have taken so much time and shown so much patience (along with a few others) to help me understand how to improve my system.
I sent some info to Vexel that I received regarding surviving H1N1 and I hope it struck a chord with him enough to help him stay healthy throughout this battle we're being pulled into. I'd like to send it to you also and it is too long so I'll email it to you instead.
I sent you a message yesterday. Did you get it? It seemed that several posts I made weren't registered. And I wish I knew why it shows me as using Yahoo Instant Messaging which I don't use. I want to have it removed because if someone were to try to IM me they might thing I was not interested in speaking with them but it's just that I just don't have time to get into that. I burnt out on that stuff a long time ago. Same with FaceBook. I guess I should tell it to EhMax?
