You have Mac Pro 2009 which shipped with 10.5.7 which is the minimum OS for that card, and drivers for OS X are just part of the OS and any update.
Only time you would use ATI separately is running Windows. There have been the "exception that makes the rule" very very rare and usually only once, where Apple will have a separate standalone. But not in this case or with this card. Ever.
Apple versions of ATI and Nvidia have Apple EFI firmware on them.Mac Pro 8800GT 10K VelociRaptor, Mac OS X (10.6.3), Windows 7 i7 3.2GHz GTX 260-216
Currently Being ModeratedJul 14, 2010 7:52 AM (in response to herod)Is there any software diagnostics out there for the ATI Radeon HD cards? I have an iMac 27" i5 and I believe that the video card is giving me some problems and want to run sometype of diagnostics before I take it into the apple store...
Because when I take it into the Apple Store how are they going to be able to isolate the video card as the problem that I have...which is my screen turning off randomly. I have the new firmware for this, and before the new firmware was released I had NO problems.
Any suggestions would be great!iMac i5 quad core, Mac OS X (10.6.4), 27"
