    I am thinking of getting a dual G5 2GHZ with the PCI slots.

    I have heard of some problems with both the PCI slots (m-audio, TC powercore) and some problems with the PCI-X slots with incompatibility.

    I plan to use a Multiface in conjunction with a Fireface through core audio.

    Can people please tell me their experiences with either of the Dual Macs and let me know if I can expect any problems.

    Thanks in Advance.

    i haven't had any issues with my pci slot... dual 1.8

    but there are plenty of uprisings in concern of pci-x with uad cards and powercore...

    search for uad and go to their forums and you will see a beast of postings and resolves...

    oh, btw - UAD plug ins sound f*ckin great... even if you can only run a few, those few will turn your mix into something wonderful

    Thanks so much for the reply Fontane.

    Have you been able to use your UAD with the Dual 1.8?

    I am really interested in something like that. I am still waiting on my Fireface before I get the MAC up and running.
