If I got another 7300gt, could I run them in SLI while running bootcamp? I know this is not possible while running OSX.

thank you,
Robert

Good news all Mac Pro Owners.

I called apple's tec support and they confirmed that you can use SLI. In OSX it will act like two seperate cards, in bootcamp it will take advantage of SLI. He said the computer supports it but OSX does not. You just have to get the cable.

I asked about the 7300gt, I dont know about the ati.

I'll let you buy it first to discover it doesn't work! I've given up with tech support people! Apparently Pro tools would run fine on my intel mac, absolutely definately perfectly. Great. Except it didn't for 3 months until the update came out.
