Hi folks,

I have a 2006 Mac Pro that I recently started working on. I'm trying to improve the graphics, but the apple suggested cards are all terrible. At the moment it has the Radeon x1900 series, one of the suggested cards, but it just isn't up to par. I use most of the adobe programs, including photoshop and illustrator, as well as Autocad. I'm also interested in doing some gaming, and my MacBook Pro handles games better that this card!! :Not-Amused: really? I use boot camp in the Mac Pro, and tried putting in a non mac card while using the PC side, which worked great, but didn't work with the Mac side.

Anyways, do you guys know if I can put something else in there that will work better than the current card and work on the Mac and PC sides?
