    Ah! A DVR-109…well at least your G5 and my G4 share one spec…I recently bought that drive and am loving it :)

    Congrats on the new box!

    Congrats, man! A new machine is always sweet.

    Re: OS X GUI sluggishness, have you tried turning on Quartz 2D Extreme yet? Any info on why it isn’t on by default? I’ve heard that it’s actually slower than the “software” path, which is still pretty fast these days. My theory is that Apple is giving developers a little more time to change their code to use the “fast path” methods to avoid the areas where Q2DX causes a performance penalty.

    Sadly, my old GeForce 4MX doesn’t have the capabilities needed for any of the new Tiger graphics coolness. :(

      Sorry, I meant to say that I heard it’s slower than the “software” path in some instances. I’m guessing slower cases are situations in which developers are not using the optimal path for the way Q2DX works.
