I'm looking for a cheap graphic card with support for Mavericks. The graphics card should work as possible without additional driver.

 

Can you recommend me some models?

Twintech nVidia GeForce GT610 2GB DDR3 is mega cheap as (other brand possibly too). Got one earlier this year for under 20Eur brand new off someone who bought it by mistake, but they're normally available for under 50Eur off retail places.

 

It works OOB. Needs no power connection, plugs straight into the PCIe slot and off it goes.

Nvidia GT 620 by Gigabyte (only one I had a chance to test) works great. Up to 2 displays. All ports can be used however only 2 at a time. HDMI audio works great as well.

I've used both GeForce 210 and Radeon HD5450. 

 

The GeForce 210 works OOB with GraphicsEnabler=Yes,

As for the HD5450, I inject a compatible dev-id via DSDT to use the stock kexts.

 

For me the HD5450 performs a lot better than the 210.

Thanks for the reply. 

 

I would prefer a silent graphic card without fan. Maybe someone has a tip for a passively cooled graphic card.

Only low-end cards like the GT610 are offered in a fanless passive package. This being said, I have a GT610 with a small fan, and it cannot be heard over the desktop's own fan (which is not loud by any means).

GeForce G210 also exists in fanless flatter format (1 slot wide/thick) that the GT610 pictured above.

Hi Rampage, I would like to know if the hdmi audio volume adjustment works or not, because to me it works well but I'm not adjust the volume.

In your previous post you wrote that the GT620 works well and also works well for me but I'm not adjust the volume so that I wanted to know if there is a way to be able to adjust or if I have to resign.

Looks like he is not telling you, he's asking you. He does not seem to be able to adjust the volume on his HDMI connection.

Exactly, I can not adjust the volume of HDMI, unfortunately I am writing with Google Translate and maybe I do not understand well.

I understand but no one has the KNOWLEDGE, it's a forum, we are here to discuss

 

We, mostly, are just common users, we, mostly are from different country, english could be hard to understand, sometimes

 

If you know the answer just give it, don't need to say {censored}

If you don't wanna help just don't answer

My question was simple enough you do not need to respond with ugly ways, to be a moderator and keep the peace, I see that you bring war, however, thanks anyway.

This behavior is not a bug but a feature since Apple OSX, and thus assumes that digitally connected devices (mostly television, high-quality speakers etc..) On the device itself be controlled and the computer is only the players for these devices.
