    Hi there,

    I am wondering if anyone knows if there is any native support for any 400 or 500 series Nvidia cards in Lion with out hacking kexts and stuff. I have a 285gtx right now and don't want to upgrade to an AIT card cause it doesn't support CUDA.

    Any advice would be appreciated,

    If it worked under Snow Leopard...

    I have a very incompatible card. An AMD Radeon 4670, wouldn't work not matter what in Leopard, and in Snow Leopard it took till' 10.6.8 update to work which after that it did perfectly. I recently moved to Lion and its working just like it did in Snow Leopard, so if your card worked in Snow Leopard, I think it should work in Lion, but just in case back up your current working video card kexts under Snow Leopard (Assuming its working in SL) so that you can replace Lion's kexts should it not work. Good Luck!
