    Can I get a PC 5770 and a Mac 5770 to work in the same machine? 5,1

    I have the PC one in the 3rd slot, it recognizes it kinda...

    It says this for PCI card info
    There was an error while gathering PCI card information.

    and ATY,hoolock when I click on Graphics. Should this card be in the 2nd slot instead? I am just worried about heat on the Mac 5770.

    That error is normal when you combine EFI and non EFI cards, or jsut have non EFI graphic card. Same thing with me: Apple 5870 + GTX 560 Ti 448.

    Graphics cards should go in slots 1 and 2 because they are x16.
    Slots 3 and 4 are PCIe x4.

    OS X will get the same card info in evey slot.
