    A few weeks ago I exchanged one of my graphic cards because the one, that came with the Mac was broken. For about 3 weeks everything was fine and since yesterday the Macpro does not recognised one of them, although they are exactly the same card. I also swapped the PCI Slots but no success.

    The MacPro is an early 2008 Model , both cards are ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT.
    Beside the Radeon cards there are one Fire Wire Card and one UAD 2- Quad installed.

    One of the cards is recognised as this:
    ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT:

    Chipset Model: ATI Radeon HD 2600
    Type: GPU
    Bus: PCIe
    Slot: Slot-2
    PCIe Lane Width: x16
    VRAM (Total): 256 MB
    Vendor: ATI (0x1002)
    Device ID: 0x9588
    Revision ID: 0x0000
    ROM Revision: 113-B1480A-252
    EFI Driver Version: 01.00.252
    Displays:
    DELL SE198WFP:

    and the other one as this:

    Display:

    Type: GPU
    Bus: PCIe
    Slot: Slot-4
    PCIe Lane Width: x4
    Vendor: ATI (0x1002)
    Device ID: 0x9580

    A certain batch of 2600XTs have an issue where they fail. But mine is still working.

    Yes, apple had a recall/replacement program for a certain batch (based on serial numbers), but I believe the program is over.
    At the time, mine failed, and I purchased a 5770 for replacement not knowing about the program. Shortly after, I heard about the recall and contacted apple. They ended up sending me a check to cover the cost of my 5770 replacement.
