    I just recently bought a XFX Radeon HD 6570, for my Mac Pro, and everything seems to be working great. My only issue is that I can't seem to open any games made by Valve. I tried TF2, Portal, And Left 4 Dead. I've been searching everywhere for an answer, and I'm coming up dry.

    Here are my specs:

    Mac Pro 1.1
    Running OS X Lion (10.7.5)
    2x 3.0GHz Dual Core Xeon processors.
    3 GB of RAM
    Radeon HD 6570 Core Edition, 2 GB DDR3

    Thank you!

    He probably got a PC 6570.

    The reason the 5770 and 5870 mac native cards are literally twice as expensive as their PC counterparts, and outdated cards to boot.

    And upgrading ram for a mac 1.1 is probably ridiculously expensive, since the ram is out of date.

    @OP, can't speak much to 6570. 6870 is fantastic though.
