Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: EVGA 01G-P3-1080-TR GeForce GTX285 for Mac 1024 MB DDR3 PCI-Express 2.0 Graphics Card (Personal Computers)
I imagine the card works fine, but the description does not disclose that it does not work with the earlier versions of MacPro. It should say
"Requires Mac Pro (Early 2009 with 1066MHz DDR3 memory) or Mac Pro (Early 2008 with 800MHz DDR2 FB-DIMM memory) with PCI Express 2.0 slot. Card is not compatible with version ____ and 1,1..."
Also, the instructions that are included do not say anything about installing the driver at all. So before removing your old card, be sure to run the included installer and it will check to see if your system will support the card (I regretfully installed the card first which waisted a lot of time, as the power cables are very small for full size hands to install) Since most video cards don't need drivers on a Mac, it is easy to overlook.
