Windows Graphics Card for Mac Pro

Recommended Posts

Hi, hoping for a bit of advice.

 

I have a 2009 Mac Pro and want to upgrade the graphics card from the stock GT120. My budget is around the £100 mark.

 

Please can someone direct me towards some guides/tutorials in order to take a standard Windows compabtible graphics card and update it to work under OSX?

 

I'm currently on 10.7.x, I occasionally run Windows 7 32 bit under bootcamp so would be nice for it to be compatible with that as well.

 

I do have access to a native Windows 7 desktop PC.

 

Any other helpful advice would be greatly appreciated.

 

EDIT: just be clear, i want to game under OSX (and occasionally Windows)

 

EDIT2: Well bugger me, things have moved on since I first got this machine. Seems Apple made a consumer freindly move!

Thanks for the info.

Think I'm going to go for an older GTX470, I appreciate the 650 runs cooler and draws less power but the 470 seems to have more grunt.
