Anyone currently use any of the Mac Pro G5's (stock) video cards for mining? Were any of them worth a crap (to mine at like 20+MH/s)?
Our company will be ditching about 15 of them, and I've been given permission to cannibalize parts if I want. And whatever I don't take will be going to a recycling company. So of course I'll be looking through the video cards to see what the stock cards are/were, and if we've upgraded any of them to something beefier. I really don't want any of the other stuff out of the G5s, although I am tempted to cannibalize parts to make a "super" G5 out of them all, but most likely I'll just let them go minus any video cards that are worth a crap.
We currently have several "mineable" cards still in some newer Macs in production, so I can't take any of those until we end-of-life them.
The G5 is one of the best looking computers inside and out. It is also one of the most power hungry computers as well, and that is without mining. You will be burning up a lot of power and making very little MH. Go for a single $100 5830 or better and you will get much more MH with much less power.
