    If I am going to install a new video card in my Mac Pro, I imagine the process will be simple on the Mac OS side, but what about windows in bootcamp? Will it recognise the new card on first boot? or do I have to go through dos or something? Apart from updating the drivers is there any other configuring that needs to be done?

    Windows should just start up in a default resolution mode to give you an opportunity to install the drivers. Depending on you OS version and settings it may even install the drivers automatically from Windows Update.
