I was wondering, if anyone know if the PNY Graphics Card Verto would work in my Mac Pro (2010)?
Brought the card from Best Buy for 100.00, hoping to to replace my aging Radeon 5770.

How much money are you looking to spend on the card? There's some pretty solid options available.

I wouldn't recommend you get the GT 740. It won't be a big upgrade over the 5770

I have a AMD 7950, its a good card but it's noisy. I've heard the GTX 680 is better, but is more expensive.
Maybe it really is all cocks in the end.
