    I think I might have to replace my graphics card on my mac pro 2.8 (2008 model) any ideas which graphics card would be best to buy? I use 2 separate monitors for music production so this is essential to my work. I have heard about cards that can handle 3-4 monitors simultaneously so I would be interested in that also. I am looking for reliability and stability rather than cost...but if I can save some money along the way that would be great too!!! :) Merry Christmas guys!!

    Apple 5870 is what I have. Handles 3 monitors.

    The 5770 handles 3 monitors and is cheaper. I guess it depends what you need the card to do / how fast compared to how much money you want to spend.
