Hi

 

I have a 2007 3.0GHZ Mac pro, the current graphics card in it -  ATI X1900 XT is giving me a lot of problems for a while now. I have taken it out cleaned it and put if back in but they are still happening. Then I found this artical about it -

Looks like there was a problem with it and apple were replacing all the cards within 3 years of purchase which I have missed. So I want to buy a new one, but I want to make sure my mac will support it. The problem is I do video work so I want a decent one and it needs to have 2 DVI ports. Would my mac support this card

Is there somewhere I can get a list of supported cards for a specific mac pro model?

 

Thanks!
