  2. Hi Guys, i purchased a 3870 ATI Card for PC and soldered a 128kb Rom Chip onto the card so i can flash the card with the real mac 3870 efi bios but the one i got is not working. Can somebody please put online or send me an email supercard@gmx.at with a clean 3870 mac rom dump. Thanks This is the one i used (no signal), i also included the screenshot from my 7300GT.

  7. [How To] Enable Quartz 2D Extreme and Disable BeamSync

    if i disable beamsync with "sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver Compositor -dict deferredUpdates 0" it is smooth but a little bit stuttering if i disable beamsync with quartzsimple it is behaving as it should - whats wrong? - i would prefer not opening quartzsimple every boot another problem seems to be that some programs switch the beamsync settings - then it is a little bit stuttering - then i have to open quartzsimple again and disable beamsync and it is working again - strange isnt it? if someone has a solution for my problem please go ahead thanks

  9. Hello, would be nice if someone could send me the dump of an 24 inch imac. You can do it inside OSX here is the link to the tool required http://thomas.perrier.name/software/Graphi...r-1.3.2.dmg.zip Instructions to dump the rom 1. Download the tool above 2. Go into the "NVIDIA Tools/NVIDIA ROM Dumper 1.1" Folder 3. Launch "Run Me First", it needs you to enter your pwd 3. Launch "NVIDIA ROM Dumper" 4. It will dump your rom either in the NVIDIA ROM Dumper 1.1 Folder or at the root of your home folder If you could be so kind and email me the rom to stefan.prager@inode.at Background Story: Guys at Strangedog are working to get more cards to work in Intel Macs. Here is the link to thread at strangedogs http://strangedogs.proboards40.com/index.c...read=1172149861 Thanks in advance Steven
  10. Hello guys, i got a little Problem. I am getting a Quad Powermac but there is only a Geforce 6600 in it. So i thought about flashing my 7800 GTX to an PPC Quadro 4500. Got the Rom from strangedogs, it is also a 64kb one and the 7800 GTX is identical to the PPC Quadro 4500 as far is i know. Any advice or maybe someone who already did it? Thanks in advance Steven
  11. nobody will fix it, it simply doesnt work (for a long time) with 512mb nvidia cards, go and get one with 256mb ram
  12. get an used premium 360 if you like to play great games and like to play online get an wii if you play alot with friends get the ps3 if you want an blueray player - as of now the game lineup blows and it will for sure take a while to get going.. i would say the 360 offers the best value
  13. Mess with the best die like the rest

    i know it from the gorgeous movie hackers, there was a guy called Zerocool/Crash Override who said it
  14. 7900 GTX 512 in a Hackintosh

    no one got this card to work, it seems that the natit/titan kext need to be modified but nobody of the capable guys showed interest in doing it so i would sell it asap, flashing is not going to work buddy :-) i got myself a nice 7800 GTX (256mb of course), it is working great, ext. desktop also works
  15. SoundBlaster Live! 5.1 Error

    there are no drivers available for your card, it will never work buy an usb/firewire soundcard
