    Also, I have the first Mac Pro...so I would have to buy the one with a specific bus speed. Is there much difference between the two 8800's?

    Thanks,
    Make sure that it works with Mac Pro 1,1. I think I heard something about some video cards working with the new Mac Pro but not the old one...

    If it's said to work with Mac Pro (1,1), then it probably will...

    As for 8800, you might like to have a look at this article:

    It says that it depends on the generation of the video card. You can also check the specs on Wikipedia.

    Thanks for the good link. I do most of those every time I buy a video card.

    If you check out here: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT Graphics Upgrade Kit for 1st Generation Mac Pro - Apple Store (U.S.)

    This is the one for my Mac Pro. I guess I am wondering if it would make any difference for an upgrade from my current card. From posts I have read it does make a good difference.

    It depends on what are you expecting; you are upgrading the graphics cards ofc.

    (but graphical usage-wise it doesn't seem to make such a difference... to me, that is, and not worth the $279)

    Jancis was scribbling a note to Jaxom to come at once when Slen, with a cry of relief, said, Ruths here and everythings under control
    The girl beside him screamed and he shot a glance at her, her face white as the sheet, eyes distended and staring straight ahead, in the grip of complete terror. He spared one hand from the tiller long enough to haul her as close to him as the tiller between them permitted. He grabbed her rigid hand and placed it under his on the tiller. Then he coiled his right leg around her left one, angling his body to touch hers at as many points as the rough passage permitted.
    Col. Freyt did not conceal his relief at Rhodans presence. There had rarely been hours that critical in Terrania. Reginald Bell even maintained that it was the most exciting day he had spent since settlement in the Gobi ten years earlier.
    NASA is delighted with the effectiveness of its new guidance-and-tracking system, Dave was saying, looking well pleased, and theyre quite happy to leave it in the need to know category. More queries from Padrugoi, requesting details of this top-secret G and T as a possible adjunct to their systems.
