Which graphics card to choose?

Hey guys,

I recently bought a Mac Pro after suffering for years at the hands of my hackintosh, and its absolutely amazing!

 

The one problem i have with it is the graphics card, more specifically the ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT that came with the macpro.

 

The problem is thats its too noisey, too slow and old technology. So im looking to upgrade...

 

Well i haven't been on this side of the hackintosh scene before so im wondering,

What is the best graphics card for me to get?

 

Apart from the 8800gt, most of the offerings from Apple themselves are pretty weak, so im most likely going to have to go down the Nvinject route.

So what Nvidia or Ati cards can be NVinjected to work on the mac pro?

 

Something like an 8800gtx or above would be where im hoping for :angel:

 

 

Any help would be really appreciated guys :)

Guys please note that im not asking what graphics cards are available from Nvidia or Ati/AMD.

 

But What is the best possible GPU for the mac pro, that i can flash using nvinject?

I would prefer not to have the original card taking up a pci slot as im running fairly tight on space as it is.

Now you can get a NVidia 8800 GTS 512mb (G92) for a reasonable price.

And performance are not bad at all.

I'm trying to make a non-Apple one (that I had in a PC) working on my MP.

I'm sure there's a way.
