    Hi Guys,

    Just got this card under the impression that it would only work in windows under boot camp but i've since heard it might work in leopard too, is this true and also, how?

    Also, i have a problem installing the card. It requires 2 power leads. But i already have an nvidia geforce 8800 gt installed. Does anyone know how i can have both installed at the same time? If i were to remove the nvidia card, would leopard still work?

    You'll probably need a 6 pin to 8 pin adapter.

    Go check out the Mac Pro forum, there's stacks of posts in there in regards to running non-Apple cards.
