    Do both of these run fine in an early 2008 Mac Pro? Sapphire does not have the 2008 model listed. After buying a new 3.06 12 core, I gave my son the 2008.

    They should both run in the 08 pro. Depending on your price limit I would go with the gtx680, its much much better with games.

    I wanted to purchase the GTX 680 but it's out of stock in Amazon and Newegg. Seems to have sold out quite fast.

    you can flash one yourself

    or go to Ebay, lots for sale there

    you can even get 4GB versions on Ebay

    One really brilliant seller has GTX770 cards already.

    Thanks for the tip MacVidCards. I am waiting for my friend's decision if he will sell his other GTX680 as he has 2 of these. Will also check out eBay. :)
