    Bought the NVidia 8200gt for my 1st gen mac pro from the UK :apple: store.

    What they neglect to tell you there (which they do on the US site) is that it only works with 10.5.2 .

    Does anyone have any idea if there are drivers available for Tiger or am I stuck?

    I mainly use my Mac for music and alot of my music software is Tiger only so have to keep my tiger partition. I use a windows partition for gaming and the 8200 works fine there but I have to Physically swap over the graphics card when I want to go down that route, which is inconvenient to say the least.

    I am pretty annoyed with Apple for not having correct information on their UK site but am loathe to return the card as I do use it under windows.

    Thanks For your help.

    There aren't any 8800GT drivers for 10.4 Tiger. :(

    yeah that's what I thought...

    It would have been nice if Apple had made that clear when I bought the card...
