I have a dual-quad 2. It's a great box, even as it's approaching 4 years since I bought it, but the video capabilities of the were showing their age BADLY.
Like many Mac Pro users, we're on pins and needles waiting for Apple's newest system. Since it looks like it's going to be a while still, I wanted to bump the older system up and move the new card to the new Mac Pro when it comes.
My impressions of the The card is a very nice looking white, full-length card, but is slightly shorter than the card it replaced. Packaging is on a par with what you'd expect with a commercial product. It came with a well-written users manual, a PC driver disc, a Mac OS X disc, two power cables the card draws too much power to be powered only from the PCIe bus and some random bits of paper. Installation was very easy. It's very simple, launch the correct installer for your OS either Lion or Mountain Lion , reboot the system.
After reboot, I shut the system down, removed the power cable from the back of the system, cracked the case, removed both power cables from my , removed the card retention device, slide out the old card, blow out any dust, install the new card, replace the card retention device, reattach the internal power cables or if you're upgrading from the stock card, install the supplied power cables in the sockets inside the system and attach them to the card, making sure they're firmly attached and click into place.
After that, close the case, reattach the main power cable and power the system up. The system worked without any changes or reconfiguration. I noticed immediately that showing the open windows and desktop in Expose were greatly faster than before. I brought up some OpenGL apps and they were spectacular. I was able to go to the highest detail level on games like SecondLife and everything was very snappy.
I'm very happy with the card and consider it money well spent breathing new life into an aging system.
I don't regret this purchase in the slightest, since it's make my Mac Pro extremely usable again. Dec, I've noticed that i was having many more kernel panics that were related to the video driver chain after I'd upgraded to Mountain Lion, once i went to mavericks, the crashes went away, but then I'd noticed sluggishness related to video.

After I highly recommend upgrading to Mavericks. All of this with no problems. So like others here I have 1 splitter to run the This is all in a Dual 3. I never tried to install any drivers with OS I would believe Another person did not like the card because it would not power 4 displays even though it has 4 video output connectors. The directions actually says on all ATI video cards that they will only run 2 displays. But 3 is an advertised number if active adapters are used. Try it you'll like it. I'd recommend Mac OS OS Despite what the product details say, I found plenty of other information that this card works with the earlier MacPros.
I recently upgraded to Mavericks I installed the card, fiddled for a while getting the two power leads connected, and then powered up by MacPro. Kept my fingers crossed and it all worked fine. No software to install - all the drivers seems to be there with Mavericks. I installed this in my MacPro Easy installation, great performance boost over my and of course over the original Nvidia GT Toggle the switch and all is well.
Long term update after 18 months: It appears to lose sync randomly and that is very annoying. I removed it from the Mac and tested it in a PC and the same problem occurs.
