Everything Kevin said lines up with my understanding.

From other things I've read the OS is not 100% aware of how to handle features of the card like the various power states, but the experience has still been better than any other card I've used. That said I'm not throwing my old card off the roof any time soon :)

The easiest power connectors to get to in the Mac Pro are on the motherboard and are mini 6-pin (not standard). These cables worked for me:

I've read some posts by more adventurous folks who are rerouting power from the power supply, but I'm not comfortable trying that myself.
