    Tomorrow i will get my new Mac pro 2.93,
    i bought a new SSD and the GTX 285.

    My Questions is, with Snow Leopard, do i still need install the
    Drivers that came with the card, or should i use the drivers that come with Snow Leopard.
    Should i start and install first and then install the GTX,
    or put the GTX in and run the installer for OSX?

    Thank you,

    on a side note, i also have the new Radeon, which one is better ?

    Thanks

    Snow Leopard contains drivers for the GTX-285, you shouldn't have any trouble.

    Awesome thanks you,
    also how did you get this (W3580 @ 3.3 GHz) CPU in your Mac Pro?
    Can you run 2 of them?

    I just performed a chip swap. The W3580 is only good for the Quad, since you cannot use the W3580 in dual processor systems. For those you'll want to go with the W5590.
