Default Re: G5 dual 1.8 still vialble for PT?

I have a dual 1.8. It is working very well indeed. 7.4 takes a while to load up but it seems very stable compared to 6.X.
With TDM the computer is not doing a whole lot of work. I haven't delved into Elastic Audio yet, which might be CPU intensive. I do however use lots of Altiverbs. I reckon the CPU could run 10 of these if required.
I am sure you know this but just in case, these G5's use the old PCI standard which is obsolete.
Go for it if you have a PCI TDM system already.

Best Regards, DD
