The stock video card in my

The stock video card in my MacPro 1,1 (2x2.66 GHz dual-core Xeon, running OS 10.6.8) died, too. I replaced it with an ATI HD 5770 (1024 MB) and it works great for all of non-BOINC apps. :-) I set it up to work with E@H GPU tasks as recommended earlier in this thread by dedicating only 3 cores to CPU tasks, thereby dedicating one core to feed the GPU. However, E@H has not sent me any GPU apps. Below is what E@H is telling me. Any suggestions? This setup is not working with Collatz@Home, so I have relatively few remaining options for utilizing the processing capacity of this video card. Thanks in advance!

Try updating your OS,

Thanks for the assistance,

Thanks for the assistance, Claggy. Man, I hate it when I miss something obvious.

Unfortunately, I don't have any OS X 10.7 installation disks lying around - I haven't bought a new Mac recently - and Apple doesn't offer OS X 10.7 for download in the App Store anymore. Looks like I may have to bite the bullet and phone Apple to buy an OS X 10.7 installation disk. Grrrrr!!!! (Please don't interpret this as shooting the messenger!) Again, thanks for the advice!

So, I finally got around to

So, I finally got around to updating my MacPro 1,1 (2x2.66 GHz dual-core Xeon, running OS 10.6.8) to OS 10.7. And, shazam, the machine started processing E@H GPU tasks! What a cheap ($21.70) way to take greater advantage of a little-used machine. Thanks to all for the advice, particularly Claggy and Gary Roberts.
