I have a question. I currently have a MAC Pro with a GeForce 7300. I use bootcamp to boot into Windows to play games not supported by MAC (HL2, CS:S, etc). I would really like to upgrade to a different video card like a GeForce 880GTX. With an upcoming release 10/9 of Team Fortess 2 and HL2 EP2 I really do not want to use the low end certified MAC card GeForce 7300. I would like to add the GeForce 8800 only to use for Windows bootcamp. Is this possible? In essecnce I would have 2 cards in the Mac Pro using the 7300 for OSX, and the 8800 for Windows.

FYI - I will not buy the ATI from MAC as I feel the card is "WAY" overpriced (399.00) and not that great to begin with. So I feel this is not an option.

IS THIS POSSIBLE?
QUOTE Thanks
