Hi people,
I Have macpro 1,1 already bought graphics card ATI RADEON HD 5770 (1 Gb VRAM) and in the box didn't came any dvd or cd with drive just the card and manual.
Happens that I installed as recomended but some issues has occurred. On system information has two lines with differents informations:
The first line says
Card: ATI Radeon HD 5770
Type: ATY,HoolockParent
Drive Installed: No
Bus: PCI
Slot: 1

The second line says
Card: ATI Radeon HD 5770
Type: ATY,HoolockParent
Drive Installed: yes
Bus: PCI
Slot: 1

Happens that when I try open the Final Cut Pro this message is showed: "final cut pro requires that your system have a Quartz Extrem capable video card" and "final cut pro requires that your system have 128 MB of VRAM; this system has only 0 MB of VRAM)

How do I proceed to install the correct drive (there isn't this drive on ATI site) and solve this issue?

Best regards

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    Upgrade you operating system to Snow Leopard which includes the drivers.

    Hi Allan,
    When I verify on System information (Hardware - Graphics/Displays) I see that there is the information "quartz extreme: Not supported". This information is because I still don't have the HD 5770 drive installed or 5770 doesn't support this feature?

    Now I'm worried because if it Is true I wont works with FCP7 in my macpro... right?

    Thanks for your suggestion. I will buy Snow Leopard and install it.

    Did you get the correct card. Here is the Mac product #MC742ZM/A.
    If that is not the part # you received you have the wrong card.
