    You need an original apple card. PC cards do not work unless they are flashed with a special efi bios. Try to find these cards on ebay:

    ATI 5770 (Mac)
    ATI 5870 (Mac)
    ATI 7950 (Sapphire Mac)
    NVidia GTX 285 (EVGA Mac)
    Nvidia GTX 680 (EVGA Mac)

    Flashed ones From MacVidCards are great.

    ATI 7970
    Nvidia 780

    Look those up, you will find pleny.

    You would be much better served by using a digital connection such as DVI, DisplayPort, or Mini DisplayPort than an analog connection such as VGA.

    That card does not have the VGA that you say you are looking for. The card will work but only with digital connections unless you use an adapter.
