    Hello forum,

    Sorry if it's covered but I've been researching this lots and can't seem to find an answer anywhere.

    I'm looking for a new (not ebay option) budget replacement for my Mac Pro 4,1 and currently considering a 'Sapphire HD 7790 OC 1GB'. I'm not a huge gamer but want this more for triple screens and low power/noise but I can't find any posts on any HD 7790.

    From the forum, I also get the impression that nvidia cards are favoured and covered in more depth - no sticky FAQ for AMD cards!

    To be blunt, can anyone confirm if the OC'ed 7790 will work and is a good option or should I stick to nVidia GTX 650 Ti?

    Thanks

    7790 may work, but certainly not OOTB. It would need adding device id to AMDAccelerator and ATI7000Controller kexts, like 7850.
