Hello All,
I finally got my first hackintosh up and running. It works perfectly except for one issue that is bothering me. I have a GTX 570. QE/CI works with graphicsenabler=yes but I am having strange OpenGL errors. Everything looks fine, even in benchmarks until you try to run a 3D game (even chess bombs out). At this point the game launches but there is either a black screen or very garbled graphics that resemble snow on a TV that is not getting a signal. This is very annoying because it crashes Lion (rainbow beach balls) to the point where I need to restart.

Anyone have any ideas or have a similar problem with this series of cards?

I am on a P6X58D premium motherboard with a 4.0GHz Xeon W3520 and 12GB of DDR3 2000. The card is in the PCI slot closest to the CPU socket

I had garbled 3D on my D630 laptop with Nvidia Quadro NVS 135m in 3D games. my solution was, for the main game I play (World of Warcraft) I got a windows version installed using wineskin and it works flawlessly. I even get the same frames I got with SL.

I know its only a band-aid but its something until one of the gurus find a better solution.

Hope this helps!
