In Topic: Mac Pro graphics card choices with Lightroom

15 June 2016 - 12:32 PM

FYI, I'm not doing the upgrade per the Apple announcement on Monday. Doing the upgrade I might get another year out of the MacPro early 2009 computer which I don't think is a good investment for the cost. My computer guy is refunding me. He's so professional!

I'll get an iMac or MacPro next time either one is updated. The way Apple is going, I think it's necessary. I'll miss my Mac Pro tower! Such a great machine with never even a hiccup!!!!!!!!!!!!! My fav computer ever! I guess that's why Apple discontinued them, they are too reliable and built too well / easily upgradable.

Thx Carol

Drew (HI!) and Adam,

I'm upgrading the graphics card in my early 2009 MacPro. I'm actually doing an upgrade on the whole machine, which may or may not prove to be prudent... Still I'm trying to get a couple of more years before a MacPro, more to my liking, is released and I'll make the big jump.

For now, besides an ssd boot, usb 3.0, new big drives etc, my computer guy is installing a new graphics card:
ATI Radeon HD 5870 graphics card upgrade for Mac Pro Early 2009

Drew, is that a good choice?

Also Drew and Adam what are you using for externals? I always have 2 backups but with the larger drives it's getting crazier. I've had success with g-technology and I wish I could invest in something that I could use with the new MacPro in a couple of years? But then Thunderbolt 3 will probably be out by then😳

(Actually I know this is an old graphics card upgrade but I'm not sure there are any other reliable options for me? But I'm committed now to getting a bit more out of this machine. Then. later on, I'm hoping there will be a more desirable MacPro than what's available right now). Any advice appreciated.

Hi Carol,
would be interested in the Inon combo for my girlfriend.
Could you figure out a shipping rate to austria / europe?
An extra tip for paperwork will be included ;-))
For that price, there will not be a custom fee in europe.
Kind regards,

I'll PM you. I'm not sure about the paperwork for what I'm selling it for? I'll msg you, thanks! I see you sad no fee, so if it's not too complex?
