    One person has posted instructions on how to flash a PC GeForce 3 for use in a AGP Mac.

    Synopsis: I bought a PC Geforce3 card and tried to put it in my Mac. After a quick hack, it works quite well, in my opinion. Read on.

    Discussion and info also in a related messageboard thread.

    GeForce 2/3 drivers

    So, when is Nvida/Apple going to release official drivers for their cards? No one would lose on it!
    I'm still waiting....

    Drivers come partially on the BIOS of the Mac bundled nVIDIA boards and partially as part of the OS. Currently OS X only has GeForce 2MX drivers, which drive the GeForce 3 fine, but take no advantage of its special features. Apparently GeForce 3-specific OS X drivers will come as part of OS X v10.1 upgrade.

    Have you seen the new tests of the Radeon 2? They barely beat a GeForce 2....
