Hey,

I have a spare pci-e x600 pro videocard (PC Version) and I was thinking to add it to my system (Mac Pro). My system has already a X1900 XT as primary videocard. I installed Natit, and it detects the x600 but the display doesn't get signal from the VGA port. Both displays on the x1900 XT work perfectly.


Output from System Profiler: Graphics/Displays

ATI Radeon X600 Series:

Chipset Model: ATI Radeon X600 Series
Type: Display
Bus: PCIe
Slot: Slot-4
Vendor: ATI (0x1002)
Device ID: 0x5b62

FOrget the card you can only use Radeon X1000 series and newer Nvidia cards, so no Luck with X600, X700, Radeon 9800 etc.

I have two X1800 GTO's and was wondering this same thing. I think I'm using Natit.kext 1.0, but I will check again when I get home soon. I can also provide an ioreg -l if needed. I'm running an ATI Crossfire 3200 motherboard as well. Also, dual screen, rotation, QE/CI, Resolution changing all work beautifully. I have three monitors as well: 1 Dell 1905FP 19" flat panel and 2 NEC FE1250+.
