While I'm a seasoned software user, when it comes to hardware I'm a bit of newbie, so forgive me if this is a basic question (some of the posts related are pretty in depth, whereas I need something basic). I need to purchase a pc graphics card for my mac pro 2008 for use with Autodesk projects including 3dsMax. It's not necessary that it work on the Mac side which is why i'd rather go with a cheaper PC card than an expensive card that works for both the mac and Bootcamp sides (such as the quadro 4000 mac). I understand that installing a pc card for ONLY bootcamp will work. But as a newbie...is it as simple as plug and play? Will windows automatically understand to use the new graphics card and not the other? And will osx understand NOt to use the new card (since I will still be using the mac side for all things other than autodesk software). Other posts talk about installing new power supplies, flashing cards, etc etc (which is well beyond my knowledge)...but i'm not sure if that's getting over the top for what I need. Finally...i haven't chosen a graphics card yet...any recommendations for this type of 3d modeling and CAD software?
