    8800 in a Mac Pro
    Ok guys so this is what i've found on youtube.
    it's a minute length clip, i've tried to contact the user "massvoltage" on youtube. still waiting for his feedback on it.
    i asked him if he can take photos of it in a Mac Pro plus showing us new clip.

    what do you guys think is it possible to have 8800 in a Mac Pro!

    Running Windows via BootCamp it should be possible. The card won't work with OS X.

    Trust me, video cards need to be Mac compatible in order to work with OS X. That means only 3 video cards work with the Mac Pro and the 8800 isn't one of them.
    Owning a Mac Pro I can say this from experience.
    Plus, is that game even made for OS X? If not, another dead giveaway he is running Windows.
    The picture isn't any good on my iPhone. I can't even tell if I see a monitor hooked up to the Mac Pro. He could be completely fooling you and he's running a PC you can't see on camera.

    He may be running an 8800 on a Mac Pro but he isn't using OS X.
