I am. Running Lion 10.7.2. I'm also running it in slave mode, no monitor attached. I have a 5770 driving my displays. You can't really use a 5970, since it needs both power cords.

I've never had any issues with either FCP X, FCP 7 or PP CS5.5.1 running both cards. I also ran with just the Quadro for a while, but that was just prior to running FCP X.

Make sure you download the CUDA drivers from NVIDIA. Mac OS supports the Quadro, but it doesn't include the CUDA drivers.

Here's the Bearfeats benchmark showing Resolve benefits from running the Quadro in slave mode. Although they ran the test on version 7.x.

It looks like B&H has the lowest price for them right now.

What's up with all the other responses here? Is everybody a comedian now? I come to this site for helpful and insightful conversation. Honestly.
