    Is it possible to put in a GTX570 or 580 in an old MP 1.1 with OS X 10.7.4?

    I just want to be able to do Blender GPU rendering with Cycles (cuda)
    Today i use a flashed ATI 4890 thanks to Netkas but it doesn't have cuda.
    I'm holding out for the next MP but meanwhile a GTX580/2GB would make the wait so much more durable if it would be possible.

    So what do you pro's think?

    Cheers

    Yes, you can. 570 is recommend though since it only requires 2 6 pin plugs, instead of a 6 and an 8. You just have to follow the usual steps to install the Nvidia 'magic' drivers.
