    Hi All, I've been playing a few games on my MacPro which was one of the reasons I went with the 2.2 1GB Graphics card. However, when I exit the games the Mac just goes to a black screen and I have to press the power button to turn it off..

    This doesn't happen every time but say 2 out of 5 times I play Civ V or Trine.

    I'm guessing using the power button to turn the machine off is not a good idea but there's not much I can do..

    Anybody else experiencing a few crashes playing games?

    Rob.

    Upgrade to 10.6.7 to fix this. There have been a dozen threads on the issue and front page news items if you want to read about the details.
