    Why not? It'll just boot using the BIOS side.

    Sounds good. I'll put it into good use then.

    Just make sure you have the power cables for it.

    Won't a standard 6-pin PCIe power connector work?

    You'll need an 8-pin and a 6-pin for the 4870.

    Actually, the OEM Mac 4870 uses two 6 pins.

    Most PC supplies should have them these days.
