    Hi
    I'm a proud owner of a Mac Pro.
    Currently I have mounted the 7300gt and it goes well. However to play games I need a powerful card, such as the 8800 (Yes I like nVidia and hate ATi...).
    I know that OS X doesn't have drivers for 8800 and that the card doesn't have the EFI rom but my question is:

    Has anyone a Mac Pro with an 8800 gtx/gts that works in boot camped Windows, and the 7300 for OS X?

    I write this cause when I bought the mac I had had the 7950gx2 from the old pc and in osX caused kernel panic... I don't want to get a panic with the new card because I can't live without OSX...

    Thanks

    There were so many topics on this. You should search.
    But check this thread.

    If you want me to simplify it for you, without reading those other threads, then I will tell you, yeah the 8800 (Or pretty much any other GPU) will work under bootcamp.
