Finally... a Replacement for the GT120 with 10.8.3 drivers?

Just found this cheap little card on Amazon...

http://www.amazon.com/XFX-DisplayPort-PCI-Express-FX775AZNP4-FX-775A-ZNP4/d...

I'd love to replace my GT120 for (anything really) due to the issues it has with FCP7, and it's age and lack of power for the few times I just a little juice in my primary display.

I was also thinking about the GT620, and staying in nVidia land but I haven't heard anyone giving it a shot...

I might just pick it up to test it out... But I'd love to know if anyone else out there is testing it with DaVinci/FCP7/Premiere/AvidMC.

Anyone out there running without a PCI extender running a non-GT120 setup?

Might try one of these options out after I finish up projects this week.

so based on the subject line, there are drivers for this card in 10.8.3? do you have a link to a list of GFX and GPU drivers that are included in 10.8.3?

if so, this looks like a great replacement without jumping to the Quadro 4000

Supposedly it works in 10.8.3
Some guys are using 640s with 10.8.2. These are cheap too...

Seriously, what "due to the issues it has with FCP7"?
I'm using GT120 and I have ZERO issues with FCP 7 with Baselight Editions, Twixtor and even Neat Video plugins.
What issues???

Inexplicable dropped frames when using the gt120. Problem goes away when I swap cards. I thought it was a pretty well known issue.

I get poor performance with FCP 7 playback all the time. Didn't know what it was but it makes sense that the GT120 is to blame. I usually had to close all other programs (especially Safari) to get footage to play properly.

Any update on this AMD card? I'd be interested in it as an alternative.
