Hi

I have recently downloaded a trial version of Final Cut Pro and realised that I donít have the correct graphics card to make it work
I currently have a Mac Pro Dual-Core Intel Xeon (circa 2006) with a NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT graphics card
Can anyone recommend a suitable/appropriate upgrade ?

Thanks

An 8800 would work quite well. Be aware there is a version for 3.1 Mac Pros and a version for your 1.1 Mac Pro. Look on eBay and such. Depending how much you wish to spend, an ATI Radeon 5770 would be close to the best.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
