    Hey guys:

    Done a ton of research on cards and I'm pretty sure I want a 750 TI since I wanted something that was bus powered, efficient and didn't generate a ton of heat. For those of you who have done the upgrade already, is there a recommended model to get? I wanted to make sure I was staying as compatible as possible, especially for things like wake from sleep and whatnot.

    System is a Mac Pro 4,1 flashed to 5,1. Thanks for any help, it's really hard to get specific model recommendations!

    A 3,1 cannot be flashed to 4,1.

    If you really want a most compatible one, my suggestion would be get a 750Ti from MVC.

    My typo. It was a 2009 flashed to a 2010. So a 4,1 to a 5,1.

    I am using the Gigabyte GTX 750 Ti (GV-N75TOC-2GI) in my hackintosh with great success. I like it because it has 2xDVI and 2xHDMI, which deviates from the Reference Design, but it can drive four monitors. I use the GTX 750 Ti to drive a dual monitor setup. The only drawback is that 1) you have to be using Yosemite and the nVidia Web (and, optionally, CUDA) drivers and 2) you have wait before updating to the latest OS X update unit the nVidia Web drivers are available. Not a big deal, but still another thing to consider.

    Yeah, that makes sense. Can't go wrong with the one MVC sells, and that way I can send it to him to flash if I feel so inclined later. EVGA it is then.

    Make sure you install the drivers before you put in the card. For some reason, I got a bunch of screen tearing when I put the card in, and I still had my monitor plugged into the original ATI card.
