    Hi. So, I might be getting a mac pro, with the X1900 XT. I was wondering if this will work in bootcamp/whatever it is in Leopard, or if the card will be hindered somehow. What I mean is, will this card run as well as it would if it were in a PC. I currently use a 6800 Ultra laptop edition, so an X1900 XT running full speed would be an awesome upgrade.

    Yes it will run fine, though it isn't a DirectX 10 card I think, so you will be limited to DirectX 9 in Boot Camp.

    I'd wait a week if I were you. Just a thought...

    Well, yes. Because once you have Windows booted on the Mac Pro, it is, for all intents and purposes, a PC.

    However the Apple X1900 XT is not equal to the generic X1900 XT. I hear it's underclocked a little (though it is possible to overclock it back to the speed of the generic/PC version, I think).

    You can overclock it in OS X as well (and flash the higher frequencies once you're happy with them). Look here.
