  1. How to get ATi 3870 X2 working in a Mac Pro?

    Hi, I understand that this forum may not be for people with actual macs, but I think you guys are the only people who could help. I have a Mac Pro (early 2008), with a HD 3870 X2 which I use for Vista in slot 1 and a HD 2600 XT which I use for OSX in slot 3. Both cards work fine in Vista, no issues. But while in OSX, the X2 has it fans rev up really high, which is annoying and could possibly damage the card as it is constant. I know people have gotten OSX to recognize the card here, so I would like some help on getting my Mac Pro to do the same. I do not need the card to fully function and do every program, the 2600 is fine for that. I just want OSX to at least recognize the card so the fans will slow down and not damage the card by constantly being at full blast. But if it's easy to get the card fully functioning, then I welcome that advice. Also, if by having a Mac will help you guys with any particular files you may need to better your systems, I will be glad to help in return. Thanks for any advice.
