Everything is working as expected except that Quartz Extreme isn't supported and doesn't work. Has anybody every used this card? Have they got it to work with QE enabled?

Displays:
SyncMaster:
Resolution: 1440 x 900 @ 60 Hz

SyncMaster:
Resolution: 1440 x 900 @ 60 Hz

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks again in advance.

Please post if you find a solution.

Hi! Here is mine own made efi string for geforce 9800 gt 512mb. Try this if you have 512mb memory. Put this in to /library/preferences/systemconfiguration/apple.com.Boot.plist. Download this and install it.

You have 9800gtx and i have 9800 gt. Try install NVinstaller v.52.pkg. You find it in google.

We have MAC Pro with a G-Force 8800 installed for two monitors. We need to install 9800-GT which we found out it's Windows Vista approved. Can we plug it and install the driver you just posted.. and what about the power cable. do we need a new one?

Dunno. Nowdays i use graphics enabler what comes with chameleon and this method works in snowleo.
<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>Yes</string>

Use that in com.apple.Boot.plist in /Extra folder. Let me know if my old efistring works with snowleo.
