Just received my G-raid and PCI express fw 800 card yesterday. Reading docs to install and I’m looking for a slot config for the g-5. Is there any recommended slot location for the card? I know the “other” edit platform is very particular about what slot is used for secondary cards. I wasn’t sure if there was a similar issue with bus segments, etc. Anyone done this recently?
So, slot 3 would certainly be the fastest slot. I am not sure if there would be any benefit to using this slot for the FW card. I kind of doubt it. If you are not going to use a capture card, go for it. If you will use a capture card in this Mac, it should probably go in slot 3. You’ll have to check the capture card manufacturer for more info on that.
