I may be wrong, but I am pretty sure that the cheaper X1900 cards will not work in a Mac Pro, since they are designed for Windows, and use BIOS. The Apple video cards (there is one listed in pricegrabber at $365, as I recall) use EFI. So far as I know, the 3 cards Apple offers as MP options are the only ones that will presently work in this model. Almost certainly, Apple will offer other MP-compatible video cards in the future, but I have no clue what they will be, when they will be available and what they will cost. Since they will be limited-production, made only for Apple, it is almost certain they will be more costly than the Windows versions.
