There is a 570 2.5gb selling for $550 on ebay right now. I was wondering does the mac actually need it's own special kind of GPUs or is it just a stupid marketing ploy because they know idiots will spend more on it if it says apple? Could I put a standard 570 in a mac and it would still work?

its a ploy.

FYI--- MAC LOST -----PC WON

a mac is a pc (contains the same parts found in pc's) with a different os.
granted the use high quality parts in most of them, and are tested and evenly built.
but you pay 3x times more for the same parts.

That video is fantastic.

I don't know if it would work, but by the looks of the video, it should.

10 years ago Apple had it's own PowerPC, nowadays is just a common CPU and common GPU.

So it will work on any PC
