    I'm buying a new 12 core, and I'm giving my son my old dual quad core 2008. We upgraded the ram, and put an Apple branded ATI 5770 in it. He wants to run Windows on it for gaming. Will that card work alright on Windows side of things. I know If we would have bought a Windows card, that would not run in OSX. He won't need to buy another graphics card flashed for Windows will he?

    I have a Mac Pro with an ATI HD5770, and it works fine in Windows 7. All mac cards will work fine in Windows as long as the correct drivers are installed from the AMD/ATI website.

    You mean the standard drivers built into OSX are not correct. Do I need to download something else?

    The drivers that come with OS X for use in Windows (the Boot Camp drivers) do work fine, but I prefer to get the drivers directly from AMD/ATI to ensure that I am running the latest drivers with the AMD graphics card control panel in Windows.
