Don't get me wrong here I'm no gamer. I was just wondering can you put the 4870x2 in a Mac pro since it only take up one graphics card slot in my cpu. Or would this card make my 8 core "BLOW UP"!!!

Without the OS X drivers or proper video card firmware, it won't work very well, or at all, in OS X. However, like belunos said, it'll work just fine in Windows via Boot Camp.
