Post Script: I just figured out I would need a new card. Seems around the $700 range. That plus a new OS I think I might as well buy the iMac, ugh!



Need a favor. Could you please look at these specs from my tower and tell me if this card is capable? I'm not that technical, basically a DP who produces now and then. Apple says on their website: OpenCL-capable graphics card or Intel HD Graphics 3000 or later. What is CL?

Here's what I have on my Mac:
