which non apple graphic card in mac pro 3,1 to use with fcp7-fcp x-premiere?

i'm running a mac pro 3,1/10.6.8/with stock gt8800/512 graphics card.

i'm hoping to eek out a bit more life from this mac pro by upgrading the graphics card.

by upgrading to mavericks (or mountain lion), i can access non-apple graphic cards but lose the boot-up screen.

but i'm unsure of which graphic card will fit/work/be effective in my mac pro.

it has been recommend to me the EVGA GeForce GTX 660 2GB Graphic Card:

any thoughts on the above card?

any other cards that might be a better solution?

i welcome any and all thoughts.

thank you in advance.

be well.

Hello! I got it, the 660Ti 2048MB non Apple. Before on a 3,1 now on 5,1. Works.



On 10.9.4 seems works a lot of GTX, also the 690, but don't know in 3,1, if power supply is enough.
Yo don't have the EFI boot but as I learn around the web, if you need it you should leave en Apple for screen and use the GTX just for CUDA.

I don't now if you'll find a "one size fits all" type of solution. For example, Premiere Pro really likes the pricey Nvidia cards.

Great card that should work for all the NLEs you mentioned. It's relatively affordable too. Another example would be a Quadro 4000 which is a bit more pricey, doesn't offer more performance but is engineered very well (better than GeForce). Either choice is good.
