    I understand that this is an after market card in my 2010MP, but it is an EFI version from MacVidCards...I get glitches sometimes.

    Thoughts appreciated.

    Have you asked MVC for advice and after-sales support?

    I have an MVC Gigabyte OC GTX 780. I've had it over a year now, and it works perfectly in my 5,1 DP Mac Pro.

    I bought it from a friend who bought it from MVC. Not sure if it's covered via support.

    Is that in 10.10?

    Been doing some eGPU testing in 10.10.1 and have seen similar stuff in Safari, some new driver/safari bug.

    Hi MVC,
    thanks for replying!

    Yeah its 10.10.1 (non beta).

    It happens when I have AE open or anything thats using a bit of the GPU power. The glitches leave residue around different windows.

    May be driver issues. I use Chrome...maybe there's a conflict?

    Try the Valley benchmark. Run it a few times.

    A bad card will show artifacts or crash.

    Sometimes thermal paste needs to be reapplied.

    Ran it for about a few hours and no glitches. It may be Chrome/AE related...
