I installed an ati 5870 and fcp 7 wont run, it says no vram. so I reinstalled the NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT. This card however doesnt support my 46" sony bravia client monitor via vdi to hdmi (with adapter) is there anyway to make it do that (patch, driver, tweek to card)? also what other card should I get that will support the 30" apple display and the sony.  I have another system luckily thats newer that I work on with clients, but I dont want to foresake the other mac pro yet. is the 5770 going to work? Please let me know what you think, I greatly appreciate it.  Also my system profile doesnt say I have pci express 2.0 on either my old or new mac pros.

why are there no patches for this card, updates, drivers? nada. let me know. thank you.

ati hd 5870, Mac OS X (10.5.8), 8gb ram
