Pros: It is the best Mac video card out there (boot screen, etc) for Mac OS About as quiet as the 5770 at idle. Minidisplay ports, wish all cards came with them
Cons: Expensive Noticeably louder in games. Would have appreciated a custom quiet cooler for the markup in price instead of the blower.
Other Thoughts: Title says it all. This purchase finally convinces me that my 2009 Mac Pro is at the end of its career.
The card is a decent upgrade over my 5770. It seems better than the 5870 I briefly had but returned to Apple due to heat and noise. As a 2009 owner, would I buy it again? No. If I had a 2012 model, maybe. Just know that if you do buy it here Newegg's VGA Return Policy is really a "Replacement only" policy.
