    Hello, I recently switched from FCP7 to Premiere Pro CS5.5, for the obvious reasons. It would like to use CUDA with PPro, but I think the the Quadro cards are way to expensive and a GTX285 Mac Edition on eBay is still very overpriced. So, what's the cheapest way to get CUDA in my Mac Pro. I don't mind a little hacking, as long as is works stable after that. I tried researching it, but I'm in over my head. I would like to use a PC 560GTX for example and use my 5770 for the EFI boot. I only need the CUDA function of the card, no displays connected, but I don't know if this will work.

    Can I also get a PC 285GTX and flash it to Mac EFI, without soldering, even just running CUDA would be fine by me. Thnx for your help!

    Ok... Double checked... I have a GTX285 for Mac, 1gig, and I probably won't ever use it again. What's a fair price in your mind for it?
