    I have a 7300 gt in my Mac Pro 1,1 and I am looking to upgrade. I am planning on getting a pc card and flashing it but am wondering what is the best card the Mac Pro 1,1 can handle. Should I just stick with the Ati 4870 or can I go bigger.

    Will the 4890 require updates every time Apple updates OS X?

    Or a flashed 4870, if you can find it. No software fix needed, the card will "just work".

    This is what I was planning on doing. Thanks

    Also will the card still be compatible in Windows after I flash it for OS X?
