What is the best gpu i can get for a 500w psu (corsair cx500). I'm running this with an i5 3570 and 8gb of ram. I guess i should add that the card would have to work with the hackintosh im running

We have the CPU in common so I'll give my 2 cents.... Try the AMD 7950. I have it and it works great. I won't recommend XFX though - their cards run a tiny bit hot.

Whatever you like, any single GPU card will run on 500w.
