Thanks, Lemur! For the record, I picked up a Sparkle GeForce GT 240 1024MB DDR3 that I have running 2 displays (one on VGA, one on DVI) but without Quartz Extreme using Chameleon 2.0 RC4 with GraphicsEnabler set to yes. Installing RC5 prerelease 12 as you suggested finally got Quartz Extreme working. The only thing is that the system profiler still reports VRAM (Total) as being 512MB instead of the full 1024MB. Anyone know if there's a fix?
Please, Can you supply the exact product number?
Is it f.e
Sparkle Geforce GT 240 1024 MB Pci-Express Graphic Card SXT2401024S3-NM
Sparkle Geforce GT240 1GB DDR3 PCI-E (LP) SXT2401024S3L-NMP

EDIT: I installed the gt200 drivers package with Netkas universal injector (Enabler for some nVidia & ATI cards.pkg) which took me to full resolution. Then I said, "Alright, sweet". The Mouse appeared but when it went to the desktop I got graphical glitches with random distorted images instead of icons. So then I restored my partition and did only the gt200 drivers package. Booted, got mouse and blue screen. Then transparent menu bar and dock showed up but the wallpaper didn't change; it glitched, freezing the desktop. Seriously stuck at a wall here.
Most people say all it needs is just an EFI string but I tried that and got nothing. Please help.

I've dumped my own NVCAP (0400000000000300100000000000000700000000) then use it to get an EFI string via OSx86 tools
Here's something I don't understand. I too have a G210, and in the EFI strings that I've downloaded, in the .plist file the NVCAP is always BAAAAAAAAwAQAAAAAAAABwAAAAA== or something like that. I got the ROM from my g210 and NVCAP maker said my NVCAP was 0400000000000300080000000000000700000000 . So the same as yours except for that 8. Now all the guides I've read say to put that into your .plist in the NVCAP string, but what NVCAP maker makes is clearly a different format (hex?). So can you put that into your .plist, or do you have to convert it to xml (and HOW?)?

News drivers nvidia 19.5.8, did anyone try it?
I'll be trying this tonight with my Nvidia G210.

I have my G210 nearly working (it was not even nearly working before in 10.6.0). I installed the 10.6.4 update and used an EFI string with my own nvcap (added after I converted the .plist to hex since NVCAP maker only outputs hex) and PCI address added ( and GraphicsEnabler=n no NVEnabler). Right now QE/CL is working (!) and the card is shown correctly in System Profiler, BUT I cannot change resolutions without causing it to go to blue screen (even after restart), so I'm stuck in 800x600 for now.
I'm going to work more on this, I feel like I'm close to getting it working. If you have any tips, please tell me. Once I get it working I'll post the winning combination.
I'm using a ECS EliteGroup Silent Series G210 with 512MB DDR3.
I now have QE/CL and can change resolutions without crashing. DVI, HDMI, and Dual Displays are still untested.
Here's how I did it:
-10.6.4 Combo Updater package (not through Software Update)
-GraphicsEnabler=n in com.apple.boot.plist
-Added my device ID to NVResman.kext and NVDANV50hal.kext

NVidia released last week an official drivers update for the its GTX-285 card... Can someone confirm that it works on Hackintosh 10.6.4 ? My motherboard is a GA-X58A-UD5. I am willing to try it out on a very stable system if someone can confirm that this test will not render my daily computer to a pile of ...

However, if I add the second card back again the OS becomes unusable. Without the SLI bridge installed, the boot process ends with a black screen, and although I can get into the OS with it installed, it freezes soon after the desktop appears. The HDD LED on the case still blinks regularly in both cases, so it looks like the boot process is still going on but video output has stopped.
I would like the second card in purely for convenience, as I don't want to have to disconnect the power to it every time I switch between Win7 and OS X. As such, it doesn't matter if the second card is essentially useless in OS X because I won't be needing it for an extra monitor or anything.
I understand that edits can be made to NVEnabler or other kexts to support dual graphics cards, so would this fix my issue, and how would I go about editing the correct files?

Hi everyone, a time ago has been installed Snow Leopard on my PC, but not support acceleration hardware, I been Installed NVinject, but that not support Graphics Acceleration yet, if anyone know how to enable (I'm a little noob in this), I will appreciate it.
Thanks in advance
Did you add your device ID to NVDAResman and NVDANV50hal kexts?

Okay, so I have a snow leopard install, and I had a nVidia 8800GT, and it worked great. I used EFI studio to install the EFI strings for it, and it worked well. I've now upgraded to a nVidia GTS 250. I've tried installing EFI strings for it countless times, but in system profiler it still shows the 8800GT. Is there any solution to this? I would really rather not have to reinstall unless that's the only way.
Thanks for reading.

Does anyone have any advice or tips for getting this card to work, when it worked it wasnt recognized in the about this mac info, it said unknown card and unknown vendor and the ROM version was xx.xx.xx - internal?
Any and all replies are more than welcome, cheers for now, Plucka

I've been suffering the issue of not being able to play games on my iATKOS S3 v2 installation because I am getting ~60 FPS (in Counter-Strike Source) with skips.
How might I fix this performance issue? On Windows I get ~300-500FPS in CSS
Thanks in advance.
