    Wow I just installed it and I can tell a big difference even under OSX! Now to install some games! :D

    Now THIS speed and performance feels like a Mac Pro!

    So should I install the ATI driver that is provided with my Mac Pro or download a new one from ATI?

    Either get the latest from AMD's site or get Steam to update your AMD drivers for you.

    I did it on my older MP, but never on the 2010 MP. Just initial installation and then software updates. Never had an issue with the drivers / card in such a way.

    ATI also sends out driver updates monthly, so watch for those :D
