    I'm thinking about getting the ATI 5570, but while it's $250 on Apple's site, I'm seeing them for less than $100 on Amazon. Problem is, while they all say ATI 5570, they all look different, so I have no idea which one would run on my Mac. Is there a third party seller you guys like that deals in GPUs? I normally go to OWC for all my needs, but they don't have graphics cards.


    For the record, I've got the early 2009 Nehalem quad core 2.93Ghz Mac Pro.

    You need the Apple card, regular PC cards won't work in OS X without flashing.
