    I saw a lot of post and report GTX285 should be more powerful display right now, but as I know GTX285 need to install driver before it work in 10.5, but after 10.6 had been out, can I install it without driver ? Or it can support clean install snow leopard ?

    Why not just try it?? Worst thing that could happen, is you need to go search for the drivers online....

    Would the worst thing not be that the poster couldn't see the display until they used a supported card?

    Considering Apple are selling the GTX285 on their site, logic tells me they would of included the drivers cause the one with the card would be slightly dated.

    Driver is in SL and the card also works with OpenCL. I have the Mac and PC versions up, latter with injector.

    Well unfortunately, if you ever call Apple with the card and ask them if drivers are included, you won't be getting a straight answer.

    Of course they just don't know most of the time (the CSRs), so instead of saying "I don't know," they give the improper "Go ask nVidia" or worse, "No."

    And yes it's supported.

    How can I check driver version in OS X? In system profiler it shows:

    ROM Revision: 3434

    Is this the driver version? :confused:
