Recommended Posts

I am looking to buy a new Nvidia PCIe graphics card that works very well out of the box

 

I am only interested in all mac features like QE ..., Dual DVI, dvd basically a card that has no issues with any OSx86 built and I am looking in from $200 to $300 range

 

thank you, your opinions and suggestions really mean a lot to me .

Get the fastest 7-series 256mb nVidia card that you can get. They all seem to work well. 512mb cards don't work.

 

7900GT?

which one: GT, GTX, or GS also non of the 7 series support DX10, it would be kinda nice to have that (optional ) since I play games in Vista

Get the 7900GT. It's not all that expensive anymore and it will work well. I haven't read any success stories with the 8 series yet, specially since they have more thatn 256MB of Ram. Another way would be to buy a cheaper card (GS, for example) until OSX86 supports the 8 series.

GS series are very weak... especialy the 7600 GS which is {censored} !

 

The 7900 GT seems to be a very good compromise.

Have you try the 7600GS series?

It's the first time someone mentions that GS is {censored} compared to 7600GT.

Did you read the reviews there? They don't seem to suggest much reliability.

 

 

hi Alessandro17, I read every review and all the 7 series cards have horrible reviews, I don't even know what to pick, maybe I should look at ATI x series cards, can you make a suggestion. I really like to get a card that I can whip any game in Windows and still enjoy all the OS X features and of cource I don't want to spent hours patching the driver.

I believe the XFX cards should be decent. It is what most people in this forum, including myself, use.

Wow! Excellent. I was trying to get Mac. But, Now I am planning for Quad Core 6600. I was worried to go for ATI cards. Now i can go for Quad Core... Can any one let me know how this spec will help me for both mac & Windows ...

Intel Quad Core 6600

Intel 975 Board / 2GB RAM (800 FSB )/ Nvidia 7900GS Graphics Card.

160GB + 80GB Seagate SATA Hard drive

D975XBX2=Bad Axe 2

Yes. Leopard should work without problems.

 

I have D955XBK INtel and I can't install Leopard. For some reason my instalation never goes thru. it starts ok and than down the middle it gives me a message that I should restart the installation. My system is completely Intel expect for video card

 

I have:

 

Intel D955XBK

Intel P D 3.4

Intel chipset

4 GB DDR2 667 RAM

Seagate SATA 3 40GB - OS X

ATI FireGL v7100 Series - struggling with it

 

 

and just recently replaced ATI to Nvidia PNY 7300GT crapiest and the cheapest card I could find in the store, so I have all the QE, Rotations, resolutions etc etc but system still kinda slugish for some reason.

1)I don't know how OS X compatible is the D955XBK.

2)Where did you find a hacked Leopard? Because only a hacked one will work, of course.

so I ended up buying {censored} $80 from BestBuy a PNY 7300 GT card that worked out of the box with titan driver, I have everything I need QE, rotations, resolutions etc etc and I get 107 on xbench, the problem I am facing now is that this card is so crappy that I can't even play BF2 in Vista :P so I am still looking but this time high performance card.

 

what is the high end card supported by OSx86 project? money is not an issue? looking for one that I can enjoy Vista, Linux or OS X with at least 512MB of RAm or above.
