    XTX Radeon HD 4870 1Gb
    I installed this new card on Tuesday in my 3.0 - 8 core Mac Pro. Have set it up with both OSX and Windows 7. Runs flawlessly in both OS's. Excellent frame rates with windows games. I am running 10.5.6 so I had to manually install the drivers. The card firmware was flashed to run on a Mac by the vendor. This is a much better card than the 8800 it replaces.

    For those who care, Windows 7 is running much better than Vista did. Faster, less problems. And the final release will allow me to run older windows software with compatibilty issues with Vista. There is going to be some sort of emulator with the final release to allow this.

    Do you mean XFX? I haven't heard of a company called XTX.
