where can i get a pci-e expander? does it connect to my macpro via a pci-e slot? because I have a USB3 card, and also a UAD2 DSP card already installed, so I can't even put another graphics card in my Mac, I have a stock GeForce GT120 which I REALLY need to upgrade. I know nothing about flashing cards, but would like to do so because I want to see my boot screen as I often need to choose at start-up (command+option) which drive I boot from. I don't want to spend over 250-300$, i have no need for a monster card... what can I get? there are so many pc cards unlike "Mac Editions" which ones can I pick and flash? are there any Mac EFI ROMs for GTX570/580? Radeon equivalent? cos' GTX680 and 7950 cost around 500$! I have only just upgraded my aging 2009 (Quad-core 2.66Ghz 4 x 2GB 1066Mhz RAM) 4.1 Mac Pro into a 5.1 Hex-Core 3.33 with 4 x 8GB 1333Mhz RAM, so the GT120 really is to been ejected. Please help me choose a card and any links to step-by-step guides are welcome! (already searched around quite a bit, but i am totally lost with all the threads on the subject, but no Guides or Selection of a list of compatible cards?)
