  1. This is my setup which so far is working with no issues OSX 10.5.7 PT HD3 PCI (not PCIe) Gigabyte EP45-UD3R ( 1.1 with the newest R11 bios ) PNY GTS 250 Some quad core chip I had lying around. I'm using a vanilla install with some kexts based on this thread http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=174385 Everything works correctly, iLok stuff, ethernet, onboard audio ( not that I really care .. ). All my plugins work with the exception of versions I had that were not intel compatible. I will probably try bumping up to Snow Leopard once I feel like there is a really solid version of PT8 that is compatible. One problem you might encounter is that using 3 full size cards is a problem on just about any board. On my board I had to remove and cut down one of the chipset heatsinks a bit to make room for the card. Something else to consider if you happen to be moving over from a G5 is that you will need a pretty large case, again because the cards are big. Just thought I would add this in case anyone is considering it.

Oh, if you want to get 3 cards going, you have to be willing to get your hands dirty a bit. I had to take the heatsink off the chipset and cut it down a bit with a hacksaw to make room for one of the cards, since they are so large. It is pretty tight but you can make it work. Just thought I would add this in case anyone is considering it.
