    Hi guys,

    I've the chance to buy one of these cards to use on my Mac Pro 8core (2008 model). I searched some info about how to flash them but im a bit confused... which one flashes and works better on a Mac Pro?

    FYI, the 8800GT costs me 30€ (it's from a friend) and the 4870 about 40-45€ including shipping (it's 2nd hand too).



    Kind regards,
    Daniel.

    4870.

    The 8800, you first have to confirm the firmware chip is large enough.

    How can I confirm that?, the only thing that I know a part from the model, is that the bios is 62.92.16.00.21
