In Topic: GTX280M in an early 2008 iMac?

Just as an update http://www.macvidcards.com/ doesn't support iMac video cards.  So I'm still on my search.

From what I've read, I could boot off a cdrom or bootcamp and do a firmware update.  (I looked around for MXM HE to PCI adapters, but they don't seem to be available anymore)  I believe I have the Apple iMac rom for the Nvidia 8800GS that was an option for this iMac.  (and the application to flash it) The 8800GS uses the same base GPU processor, so from what I've read it should work if nothing else does.  It just won't use all the GPU cores or all the ram.


I think what you are saying is that your non-apple video card works fine from the login screen forward, and mine might do the same just as it is.  Won't hurt to try that once i open my iMac up.


I was curious about http://www.macvidcards.com/, but it seemed like they only supported PCI cards for the Mac Pros.  But as you suggest it doesn't hurt to ask.
