I have a first generation Mac Pro (1,1 – 2 x 3GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon) that I purchased in November 2007.

I still love it.

THANK YOU for your valuable User Guides, and parts replacement guides!

Hi, I just installed Mac OS X High Sierra in my 2010 Mac Pro. The first monitor is active with the ATI Radeon HD5770. However the #2 screen is inactive with its ATI Radeon HD3870. Should I get another HD5770 or a different card so I can use the second screen?
