    I have a 2008 Mac Pro that I'd like to add a 2nd graphics card to and I'm worried about power consumption because I already have 6 hard drives in it and a Nvidia 8800 GT. I'd like to add a third monitor and I was wondering if there would be a problem if I added a card like the GTX 285.

    If you have six hard drives, adding a GTX 285 is impossible. You would need to run it without the side panel with a second power supply.
