    Hi all, I gave my son my Mac Pro 3,1 dual quad a few months ago after buying a new 3.06 machine for myself.. He is now interested in installing the new Saphire for Mac 7050. He does game a lot on the windows partition. I was reading people are having problems with WIndows 7 seeing the card drivers. What's the best way to attack this installation for a trouble free experience? Thanks.

    Make sure the bios switch is set to MAC and not UEFI, then install the card and use the drivers from the CD, it should work in OSX and Windows without issue. The "issue" people were having was that they would flip the switch to UEFI when using bootcamp, but the only time you need to switch it to UEFI is if you have a newer PC that has a UEFI Bios.
