To be honest, I'm testing new territory with the Mac-rom Bios switch. From what I can gather, the Nvidia Geforce 88000 GS card will accept the Mac change. The card is identical to Mac and PC, so the software should be the only hangup. I am doing this to prove a point. If the Bios can be flashed to Mac, I will figure that out. I plan on using a USB video adapter and setting up the Bios with Nvflash followed by mac-rom, which should accomplish the task. The Nvidia boards are pretty much generic for all platforms with only the Bios being the difference.
The problem is how advanced of a card will the 2008 Imac 24" 2.8gig (MB325LL/A) take? Apple will never venture into the philosophy of PC's. It is forbidden to allow after market or tailored boards to enter their frames. If I can overcome the Apple Bios, then the fun will begin on finding the fastest and coolest running card for the Imac. Nothing gained, but then nothing lost.
