Apple machines only usually work with specific graphics cards... AKA ones which are on the apple website....

Its down to the EFI bios stuff that Mac's use, you cant just buy any old graphics card and stick it into the PCI-E slot and hope for the best, the MAC Graphics cards as far as i understand are specifically manufacturered to work on MAC's alone !

For the time being the best (economical) graphics card for the MAC Pro is the 8800GT, their is the ATI X-1900 XT as well, but the price is kinda extreme and im not too sure what kinda performance difference you will see...

Afraid that if your after Graphics swapout capability, then it might of been a better purchase to grab a Dell XPS, Good old apple kit isnt exactly renound for its wide range or easy upgradability !
