You can run that card. You have to go to the Nvidia website and download the proper drivers for the Nvidia GT-120 video card that comes with the computer and set it to run on "Nvidia Web Driver". It sounds harder than it is, but in order to do this process you have to start with your old Nvidia Gt-120 video card in the machine. Also look for the driver that will enable you to run Cuda Cores on your video card. That will give you a little performance enhancement also. Hope this helps.

The 660Ti should work perfectly fine with Apple's stock drivers, so you won't have to do anything. Only requirement is a OS containing Kepler drivers (Mountain Lion or newer).
