    Hi, I have a Mac Pro that is currently running Windows 7. I need to upgrade my GPU and I wandered if there were any restrictions regarding comparability with the Mac Pro. Can I just use any standard PC card?

    Thanks

    Pretty sure you can use any card you want under windows. There are only a couple cards that work under both. the ones Apple sells and 6870 I think.

    Hello,

    Just confirming that the 6870 is happy to live in both Windows and OS X environments at the moment, so that's your most powerful "safe" bet.
