In I purchased a Mac Pro 1, 1 2. Packed with ram and a GB hard drive in every bay, the old Mac Pro worked great without a single problem for a very long time.
The first problem I had with this Mac Pro was with one of the graphics cards: one port quit working completely for some reason in the fall of Kind of a pain in the ass maybe, but not a huge deal, I thought, until I had to look for replacements! I began the hunt for replacement graphics cards immediately. I just wanted to replace the one that went bad.

Both times I had to remove the bad card entirely to continue working without the lag, which makes working in Photoshop nearly impossible. I spent countless hours scouring the web and digging around in every dark corner of every Mac forum known to the computing world for information on the graphics cards that will fit in the old Mac Pro, but only found the same 3 cards as being confirmed compatible cards.
In however, the pickings were damn slim for available compatible cards on the market, since they were pretty much out of production and had been for some time already, and after a major issue with purchasing a total piece of shit replacement Radeon from an eBay seller, I gave up and was forced to come up with a different solution. The card I purchased on eBay arrived looking like a used card in an open and obviously used anti-static bag, was stuck in a plain brown box, and had the same damn problem as my other defective cards: one port was bad!
It only takes one burn like that for me to learn and I will never buy any critical computer hardware from some eBay jackass ever again. In this case the seller was less than reputable and the experience was like being left alone in locked, dark room with your pants down.
