Video card upgrade on mac pro 2 1 for D3

Hello,

Did anybody upgraded the video card on a mac pro 2 1 (2007 version)? This is what I have except i have a quadro Fx 4500 and 8gb ram.

http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/mac_pro/specs/mac-pro-eight-core-3.0-specs.html

The quadro is slow when I play D3, once in a while there are some graphics errors too. (weird tessellations etc.)

So which graphics card will support this machine? I am looking at GTX 560 Ti. But unsure if it does supports mac.

thanks

    A normal video card will not work, you have to get the Mac specific version of the card, which is generally twice the cost. I believe the highest they have currently is the 5870, and is about $450.
