    Is it still possible to get the NVidia Quadro FX 5600 1.5GB, for the Mac Pro, I bought my Mac Pro in 2008, and wondering if it's still available for Mac?

    I'm not sure how to check this?

    Also, what's this card in comparison to the ATI Radeon HD 4870 512MB? does anyone know?

    Kind Regards

    Err, and cards on eBay and genuine? and won't damage my system, I just wonder if buying cards not from apple, they might overheat? or something if there slightly different...
    (Apple have me scared =D)

    I've found one that looks good, is this card better than the newer ATI Radeon 4870?
    I don't think it is, the ATI has a faster memory output, not that I know what that means exactly.

    Kind Regards

    We don't know till it be "genuine" cause it's ebay, you'll need to ask the seller. Or perhaps buy from a reputable seller?
