This card is compatible with your MacPro, you need to ensure that you purchase the Mac version of course because there is a PC version out there. This card uses less power than the FX5600 in my MP which is a bonus, it also costs alot less.

It is exactly the card she should buy, the Mac Quadro 4800.
So by all means Sophia, purchase the card you asked about.

I ain't into posts and counts, just trying to help. Some people think I work just for them and sometimes I just throw up and go to diner and never look back.Mac Pro 8800GT WD VelociRaptor 10k, Mac OS X (10.5.7), Windows 7 Core i7 920 9800GTX APC RS1500
