    Hi!
    Thinking of buying a 48xx card and I wonder if it would be needed a EFI bios file for the card or will it work anyway?

    Kext's are already leaked and people are already using the 48XX with QE/CI enabled.

    Getting adequate power might be a problem. It seems the '09 only has 2x 6 pin power connectors on the logic board.
