    Simple question and I'm sure it's been asked but I got lost in the sway of 4870 search results so I'm asking anew.

    Would somthing like this

    which is basically a rom hackd 1GB 4870 work in Bootcamp ? or once hacked do they only work in OSX ?

    also advise please...

    Alternatively I am also considering a either the EVGA mac or a 1GB PC GTX285 and running the kext injector posted over on the other threads. However I am concerned that Apple will block / patch the loophole allowing this to work when they release Snow Leopard and i'll be left with a €300+ brick.

    That is a really bad rip off. The card is a flashed PC card as indicated by the lack of VGA ports. It should not cost more than 180 $.

    It will work in a PC and with Bootcamp.
