ok i havent powered it up in awhile and apparently the GPU was upgraded
before i got mine this actually has the 6600 Nvidia card and not the 5200
(this brought me alot of trouble w/ noveau drivers) if theres too many
issues no ones really gotten around w/ this GPU i'll just stick w/ this or
will hunt down (if anyone actually has suggestions) for a compatible MAC
Edition card that'll still work w/ an PPCMac.
