    I have 2006 Mac Pro. I want to make sure I have the latest and greatest graphics driver. It's been working great since 2006, but with the latest release of SketchUp, I'm getting display anomalies and I want to make sure it's not my hardware.

    I found this site, but I'm not 100% certain this is the right driver. Can you confirm?

    Any other comments on my current level and going to this level?

    Those drivers are for Linux.

    You can't download graphic drivers from the manufacturers website for OSX, everything is done in Software Update.app.

    No new drivers have been released for 7300GT since 2006.

    It's more likely that apps (like Sketchup) are starting to drop support for older cards (as a result of implementing features that require newer OpenGL implementation on the graphic card etc)
