Nvidia's 8800GT comes in two flavors for older and 2008 Mac Pro, and also requires a minimum 10.5.2 or later.

Currently Being ModeratedJun 30, 2008 2:01 PM (in response to The hatter)I knew that - I have the early 2008 - and know which one I need. Is there a comparable ATI that will be better than what I have now? I prefer Nvidia - may be one below the 8800 - I have 10.5.3MAC PRO, Mac OS X (10.5.1)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 30, 2008 6:53 PM (in response to Zimmer1956)In my past PC life, built many computers and used NVIDIA exclusively. I am not sure NVIDIA supports the MAC worls as much as ATI does?
I looked at the specs on the NVIDIA GeForce 7300GT for the MAC PRO - and considering the ATI HD3870. Don't think I need the 8800 and just looking for an upgrade to the HD2600 installed now - would I notice the difference if I replaced that with the NVIDIA 7300GT? How about the ATI HD3870?
Bottom line, is either company fully supporting the MAC PRO world?MAC PRO, Mac OS X (10.5.3)
