I must ask, what's the point of this? GTX 680 already works OOB on OS X, at least on hackint0sh, so I assume it would also work in real mac.

With boot screen?

 

No, but realy why do you need a boot screen? Just buy a 5770 for PC used for $60 and flash it with EFI then sell your current card and get a nice Nvidia card and use the ATI card to boot when you need a boot screen.

Wrong. You do not need EFI at all to make a card work on a real mac.

 

Hey, has anyone else noticed how bent the DVI port is in the picture?

i do mostly video editing and light gaming, i cant decide between the 680 and 670 2gb cards, should i get the mac edition or the gigabyte with 3 fans?

if it's light gaming then the 670 could satiate those needs but on the other half of the question regarding getting the Mac edition, unless you want a more pretty looking shroud at an added premium, I'd probably setting with the Gigabyte so long as the fans aren't sounded like F16 jets tearing across the sky.

 

My 2 cents. :)

The 3 fan version is just as loud as the reference model +- 3 Decibels from what I have read while under full load.
