    Can I put a video card like the 8800 GT into my Mac Pro and use it in both OSX and XP? Replacing the one I have now. What does it take to flash a 8800 to use it with OSX? Or should I just stick with the 7300 for OSX and the 8800 for XP? And if I did that, how would I switch between the two?

    Has to be done in DOS. There are a few threads on it, search for EFI32 or EFI64.
