My name is Robert Bryant, and I am a computer tech in Central California just south of San Jose.

As a daily Mac Pro user, I wanted to provide the Low End Mac community with the necessary steps to take a base model 2006 Mac Pro 1,1 or 2007 2,1 (that can now be easily obtained for under 0) and show you how to make it as modern as any current Mac, while retaining all of the expansion that the older tower style Mac Pros provide.

The whole idea of upgrading a Mac Pro 1,1 for me started out of a curiosity: I began researching how to use the n Vidia 210 Silent video card (with no native Mac drivers) in my Mac Pro 1,1 and was disappointed after many dead-ends, finding no readily available answers, but I refused to give up.

Many who I chatted with and messaged during my search for answers claimed it just wasn’t possible to use the n Vidia 210 in a Mac Pro 1,1 without running Chameleon or other hackintosh tools to get OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion or later installed (a necessity for using the n Vidia 210 but not technically possible due to the 32-bit EFI issue), which I found disappointing to say the least.
