    I've a macPro 2 GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon with the NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT video card.

    Lately i'm playing alot of World of warcraft and was thinking to upgrade my video card. A friend has the XFX GeForce 8600GT 540M 256MB GDDR3, PCI-Express, 2xDVI, 540/1400Mhz over, so i was wondering if it's possible to instal this.

    I searched the internet for an answer but some say yes, others no so...

    And if it's not possible can you recoment a good video card for games?

    Thx

    It won't work in Mac OS X out of the box you would have to flash it with a Mac ROM first.

    Although I believe it will work in Windows just not OS X without flashing.

    Ok now I know abit more, thx ;)

    But can you direct me to some 'how to' guide about flashing?

    Is this card the hassel worth? Or do I just buy an other one? (This 1 I got for free)

    You can get info at Strangedogs you have to register. There is also The Mac Elite.

    However, I am unsure if either of these sources cover Intel Macs. Or just older PowerPC Macs.
