I have a 2008 Macpro dual 2.88g Quad Xeons, 12 gig 800mhz ram and I am currently upgrading from an 8800gt to a 5870 graphics card. I am interested to know where this system will bottleneck or will my system utilise this card well ?
ps : this systems runs Protools 8 in OSX 10.6.5. The priority for the graphics card is games in windows 7 (boot camp)
Are there bootcamp drivers for a 6870 card? If so I agree I should have done that. It seems a bit wrong to buy a brand-new mac graphics card that is part of a whole series that is already super-ceded. ha ha. Anyway ... it's ordered now so ... here goes. Thanks very much for your advice.
