    does this video card work out of the box on a mac pro 1,1 with OSX lion. I found one on craigslist for $40 bucks but he said he was using it on his PC. I read that with OSX lion it doesn't need to be the apple card and that any ATI 5770 will work. I am really not wanting to flash or make any changes to this card and the price is right...

    The card should work. You just won't get an EFI (Apple logo) boot screen with an non-Apple specific card.
