andrew smithNvidia 5xx series??
by on Jan 27, 2012 at 10:25:01 pm

Hello
It was my understanding that in the 12-core macpro the highest I can go is the 470 but a friend just sent me this link:







However macvidcards says "The 5xx series cards don't have a working EFIā€¦no boot screens...If you don't need boot screens then you can do this GTX580 mod".

I am currently running the 120/285 combo with a decklink 3D and its hdmi plate taking up the other 2 PCI slots.

I want to make sure I know what the best card to purchase is (without using a cubix) before buying on ebay - I am also willing to upgrade to Lion if need be. I would most likely just keep the gt120 as its working fine for now but If anyone has suggestions for something to swap out for while i am upgrading my 285 to a 470 or whatever then please advise!

Thanks in advance for any advice or help.
