    Hi there i owned a Mac Pro for about 1 month now and I'm about to buy the ATI Radeon HD 4870 fromt he Apple store for it =)
    Since I'm new to this i have a quick question.
    Once i have installed the graphic card on the Mac will the drivers for it be installed by the operating system or will i have to install them on my own?
    I tried to look on ATI website but couldn't find any link to drivers for the 4870 for the Mac OSx.
    I don't use boot camp only run Mac OSx will mainly use this card to get better performance in WoW.

    Thanks in advanced.

    Graphic drivers are included in OS X updates, you cannot update them manually. Make sure you're running 10.6.4

    It does now look like a release of 5870s for Mac Pros is imminent so you may want to hold off on your purchase of a 4870.
