    I was going to buy this since I need to replace my crappy NVidia 7300GT Default. I bought the Mac Pro when the price of the ATI Graphic Card din't change so it was expensive back then so I decided not to get it. I notice the price drop and it is a good investment? I was planning ot use it on Windows via Bootcamp for Gaming. Anyone try it and it is worth it? I know the Windows side on the Mac Pro right now isn't rather very impressive and drive access is a little slow too. Just want to hear some people opinion who bought this card. It still an expensive card even with the $100 price drop, so wanted to make sure first.

    Currently BootCamp does not include drivers for the ATI Radeon X1900XT but it should be included in a new version of BootCamp.

    Can you download it manually from ATI Website? Why Mac Pro is shipping with the ATI X1900XT when there is no driver? Doesn't make much sense.

    Well, Apple doesn't offer any support for Boot Camp (it's a beta, after all), so it's not really that surprising that using XP via Boot Camp is in a state of flux.
