I have an older Mac Pro 1,1 with a graphics card problem. I bought a used card and it's working OK for now, but one of my older Mac Cinema Displays has died. I am thinkiing of buying a new Mac Pro and 2 new Cinema Displays. (Or a single bigger display.)


My question is: Can I use the hard drives and RAM chips from the older Mac Pro in a new Mac Pro? I have a lot of money tied up in the additional HDs and RAM chips and I hope I can save money if they are compatible with a new "very basic" Mac Pro.


I need more current conectivity between a new Mac Pro and new Cinema Displays through the new graphics card, but it would sure help if I can use the RAM and HDs from my older Mac Pro.


Does anybody know if these items are compatible?


Thanks for any helpful answers to this question.
