The boards have arrived here! Based on the interest people have shown,  
this is how it'll be distributed:

Quadro FX3450, 256 MB, Joe Eagar
Quadro FX1500, 256 MB, Andrea Weikert
Quadro FX550, 128 MB, Roland Hess
Quadro FX350, 128 MB, Johnny Matthews

Now there's still an unclaimed Quadro FX4500 for Mac G5, PCI Express,  
512 MB. It probably fits in intel Mac Pro too, have to find out. I will  
put it in stock here for later decision...
