    1. BE AWARE!: there is no official EVGA GeForce GTX 770 SC ACX 4GB DDR5 - Mac Edition (it will be a .rom flashed one)

    This is the last EVGA Mac Edition GTX-680

    2. Please check the power requirements for this card!

    ty, but I don't search something "official", just something to work on the mac pro, if a video card can handle 4GB I would prefer to have that, especially for my works in blender :)

    I am using a flashed 770gtx 4gb vram with the ACX cooling in Mountain Lion 10.8.3 and works fine. The card is quiet and runs cooler than most cards with the help of the ACX cooling system. The Amazon link you provided in your above post shows the 2gb vram version.

    Hi BDM Studios. :) I was referring to this card here

    [​IMG]

    The link provided by the thread starter had the 680 Mac Edition indicated in the search box though below that is a 770gtx 2gb unless I am mistaken.

    Google GTX 770 Mac and then you will see all the reports on this forum of those people who installed it. There are also a couple of YouTube videos.

    Awesome sauce :)
    what's the precise name of your video card please ?
    I would to have a 4GB too

    ----------

    Don't be mad but the subject of this thread here is the GTX 770.
    If it was the 680 I wouldn't ask questions about it, because I know it's compatible :)

    ----------

    Why don't you upgrade to the 10.8.5 ?
    Just curious

    Hello. Here is the link to the 770gtx 4gb vram http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-Superclo...d=1419335815&sr=1-1&keywords=gtx+770+evga+4gb

    This card is quiet and even after 12+ hours of usage it's just lukewarm. I usually touch the card by hand for inspection and this card helps keeping your ambient temperature cool. It has a large heat sink and slient twin fans. I am still on 10.8.3 as I have a Newertech Max Power USB 3.0/eSata combo card where it's driver does not seem to work on 10.8.5 but I will try again and see how things goes.
