    as the title says im looking to upgrade my mac pro 1,1 from its 7300 gt to something that supports yosemite and is the last gpu upgrade ill do to it for the rest of its life.

    will a 7970 work after being flashed in a mac pro 1,1. i ask because i see a lot of people recommend a 5870 or older card for mac pro 1,1 and i found a 7970 for a good price but i didnt want to waste my money if it will not work.

    thanks in advanced

    Yes, worth noting from the 2006/2007 Mac Pro (1,1/2,1) and OS X Yosemite thread:

    The 10.7.5 drivers were on a disk from Saphire. They didn't work on 1,1 at the time, 32 bit version broken.

    Great cards for 1,1 if running later OS's
