I must ask, what's the point of this? GTX 680 already works OOB on OS X, at least on hackint0sh, so I assume it would also work in real mac.

No, but realy why do you need a boot screen? Just buy a 5770 for PC used for $60 and flash it with EFI then sell your current card and get a nice Nvidia card and use the ATI card to boot when you need a boot screen.

Wrong. You do not need EFI at all to make a card work on a real mac.

Hey, has anyone else noticed how bent the DVI port is in the picture?

if it's light gaming then the 670 could satiate those needs but on the other half of the question regarding getting the Mac edition, unless you want a more pretty looking shroud at an added premium, I'd probably setting with the Gigabyte so long as the fans aren't sounded like F16 jets tearing across the sky.

My 2 cents. :)

The 3 fan version is just as loud as the reference model +- 3 Decibels from what I have read while under full load.

Hope it yields some slightly better cooling for just about the same acoustics as the reference model then.
