Hello

I'm looking for a video card upgrade for my Mac Pro 2.66Ghz.

I currently have the ATIX1900 and I'm looking to get better performance for gaming.

I checked on the Apple store site and I can't seem to find the right keyword to look for.

Anyone has any suggestions?

Thanks

probably true

yeah it may benchmark higher, but I miss the ATI displays control panel, which allowed you to set graphic quality for pretty much anything, including image rotation ( I think)
something doesn't have Full screen Anti Aliasing? it does now....

just my 2 cents

I also have the 3870 and recommend it highly.

The 8800 will not work in the 2.66 quad early gen :(

2600xt is cost effective.

1900xt rev B is fine

3870 best

we have all available.

Running a 2.66 early quad currently myself with 3870/2600 ( 3 monitors ) 16 gigs of RAM and Velociraptor boot drive.

Very sweet and cost effective boxes for those not needing heavy rendering but wanting flexible config for drives and video cards. :D

With all due respect.... I have a nVidia 8800GT working in my Mac Pro 1.1

What about what MacTracker's info says (see below)
