    OK so I just ordered a new GTX 285. Its easy enough to install the drivers on OS X and plug the card in. Is there anything I need to know about my WIndows 7 on Bootcamp? Im assuming that either i need to install the windows drivers over there also or install them from the OS X DVD. Or maybe they are already installed?

    any help is appreciated

    It will work without installing 3rd party drivers but it will be using the generic Windows drivers. If you actually want to be able to use the card your best bet would be to shoot over to nVidia and grab the latest driver set. Alternatively, you could install the drivers off the Snow Leopard CD but, like most OEM drivers, they are out of date at best and may not even work properly with your card.
