Yeah the SLI graphics is more for windows biggrin.gif It is possible to fit in a atx board such as in this thread http://www.s155158671.websitehome.co.uk/macprohackintosa.html though it doesn't fit as well as a m-atx

Even though its a m-atx its still solid for overclocking and has all the features I need thumb.gif

Thanks for the advice thumb.gif I wasn't sure about SLI in OSX as I know you can buy Mac Pros with two ati cards. Does that mean things such as final cut pro can utilise both?

Got a little more done today though haven't got my camera with me so photos will be coming shortly biggrin.gif

I've also just ordered the acrylic and leds needed for the murder box styled light panel going in the bottom as shown here thumb.gif

This is going to look good, I'm just starting 'another G5 mod' myself soon, but I would've grabbed myself the Mac Pro case if I had the chance. Looking forward to updates as well thumb.gif

Progress in the last few days has been slow though I do have a small update biggrin.gif

I've test fitted the hardware in the case and its tight though wont be so bad once I get it under water, thought you guys might like some hardware shots

The system in the case

All slots filled with GPU's

Took this as it made me laugh at how much space is taken with GPU's

Had a slight set back and during the night the standoffs that were glued holding the mobo tray on snapped of mad.gif

Luckily I had taken precaution as I thought this may happen and padded the inside of the case with packaging which meant the mobo tray only dropped 1cm tops
