Mac Pro :: Finding List Of Working Pc Graphic Cards On Mp 3,1?

Jun 16, 2010

The thing is that when I use the card for 3D or gaming it sounds like a taking off airplane. From 0 to 30 seconds the card increases the fan speed/sound. I clean my macpro about 3 or 4 times a year, even my card but, honestly, I have never open the black cover the nvidia has for avoiding a disaster...

Ok I just want to know the best (or at least a better) graphic card. If it is a PC card, how could I make it work in my Macpro...

Mac Pro :: Two Graphic Cards Works Together?

Dec 29, 2008

I just bought a new MacPro last week (and really love it). I asked the people at the store to replace the standard graphic card with the Nvidia GeForce 8800.Apparently they 'forgot' to take out the original ATI Radeon card.Reading through the forum I found out that the two cards don't work together. No sweat, since I originally only wanted (and paid for) the Nvidia.

Here's my question: which card does my mac actually use? Does it always use the better Nvidia card? Should I take the ATI Radeon card out, or leave it there just in case I ever want to use 4 monitors?

MacBook :: Hd Space, Cpu And Graphic Cards

May 22, 2009

My friend recently argued with me about how stupid I was being about selling my Dell XPS for a less featured MacBook. His standing argument was that Apple gets away with murder - and by that he was arguing that they manage to sell hardware that is subpar by todays standards (hd space, cpu and graphic cards) that you could always find considerably cheaper laptops with good builds with much more impressive hardware and features.The argument over just the OS was starting to haunt me. I knew this before I had decided to return to OSX...but, egh...I guess it would be nice for Apple to deliver offerings that are more common place on the hardware side of things...

Software :: Comparing NVIDIA Graphic Cards Of My PC And The New MacBook ?

Nov 22, 2009

I have a Windows XP, and on it, I sometimes play FPS (First Person Shooter) Games. The ones I play (*if you want to know which ones, I posted them below*) run OK on my current computer. Since my computer itself is quite slow, I decided to buy the new MacBook soon (Not MacBook Pro or Air, because I am still a student, and that would be too expensive for me)
My current PC has the Graphic Card [NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE] on it, while the new MacBook has [NVIDIA GeForce 9400M G] on it (Apple calls it [NVIDIA GeForce 9400M]).

I was wondering if I could still play my FPS Games on the MacBook, so my main Question is:

- Which of the two above named NVIDIA Graphic Card is better? and a sub-question:

- Is the better one better in all things?

Mac Pro :: Will Apple Be Updating It With Updated Graphic Cards Such As The Nvidia GTX 680

Mar 24, 2012

I'm looking to buy my first Mac Pro and I'm very excited about it! I haven't bought it yet because i'm waiting for Apple to upgrade their current graphics cards that are available in the current line up. The ATI Radeon HD 5770 or the ATI Radeon HD 5870. Altough they are very good graphic cards,I feel that they are very outdated. Would there be any chance of Apple upgrading their current line up to Nvidia GTX 680?

IMac :: Finding 24 Inch 3.6 Ghz Nividia 8800 Graphic Ram

Oct 8, 2009

ok so i have had my imac for over a year now, and the graphic card ram burned out a few weeks ago. i figured it was just because i was working it too hard. usually im running a second monitor, and almost constantly playing a video game on one with hulu running on the other. so i thought no big deal i have apple warranty for the next 3 years, so i took it into the store (which is almost 150miles from where i live). well a week later i went and picked it back up after they had "fixed" my problem by replacing the whole card.

but it hasn't been more then three weeks and im experiencing the same problem. i stopped using my second monitor when i got it back, so i have no clue why its doing this.

IMac :: Finding Wrong Graphic Card Specifications?

Nov 24, 2009

Maybe i got something interesting here...

According to this pages like this one [URL]

it seems to me, that the Geforce Gt 120 (ealy 20009 Imac) is in fact an MXM III,M76XT+/256MB,GDDR3 Card, witch means, it�s an Mobility Radeon2600XT from the previous Imacs, just on an MXM III socle ( it would get better benchmarks because of cooling an higher clocks).

Mac Pro :: Finding Compatible Airport Cards?

Oct 3, 2010

I've got an old school mac pro 1.1 (because i'm too poor to afford a newer one) which didn't come with an airport card when I go it. Have just grabbed one out of a Macbook to put in the mac pro. It works, but not as a normal airport card should.

I'm not sure if its an incompatible card, or if i'm just dealing with a software issues. The normal airport menu up by the clock is useless. It just says Airport: No configured, and then has a link to network preferences in system preferences. I can connect to a network, and once its connected it works how it should, but to connect I need to go into network in system pref, then under network name, select Join other network, then show network, then i'll see the list of networks and be able to select the right one. But if I restart, or the computer goes to sleep, it forgets all that information, and I have to go back to the start again and select the network again.

Do you think its an incompatible card, or is there some software trick I can do to get it working properly?

Mac Pro :: Finding Graphics Cards For Mac Pro And Video Editing?

May 2, 2008

I am about to purchase a Mac Pro, and I saw the rumor about the new ATI Radeon 3870 coming for the Mac Pro in late May.

I had a few questions about it and Mac Pro graphics cards in general. First, will this card be available as an optional upgrade when configuring a Mac Pro from the Apple Store? Is that usually how it goes?

Secondly, I'm a video editor planning to use this Mac Pro primarily for Final Cut Studio and After Effects. It seems to have been indicated that ATI cards are better for this sort of work, versus the 8800GT they off right now.

Do these programs gain significant benefit from using ATI or is it more unsubstantial?

The other question I have is whether or not these cards would be recommended for use with the Avid product line (namely Avid Xpress Pro or Media Composer). It seems that Avid only will certify NVidia graphics cards, as it has with the 8800GT. I also am aware that Avid is not compatible with Leopard just yet, but will be in the near future.

So does anyone know if Avid performs well (or at all) with the ATI cards? Would the overall performance increase of ATI over NVidia be enough to take a chance with compatability issues?

Mac Pro :: Finding 5870 And 5770 Cards Will Work

I recently sold my XFX 4870 in anticipation of the new cards that will be coming to the MP's soon. I understand that the question will not be answered until the new MP's come out and someone can extract the BIOS. But I wanted to start a thread of which cards (Brand, Model, Rev #) works with our MP's (looks like 2008 and later).

OS X :: Spaces Graphic Freezes - Keyboard Stops Working

Jan 12, 2010

I have been having a problem where randomly after switching a space the little graphic that pops up to show which space you're switching to gets stuck on screen, though you are still able to switch spaces. Also, the keyboard ceases to work as well. The only fix I've found is fast user switching to the login window and back to my account. I'm not able to trigger the problem, and it definitely doesn't happen everytime I switch spaces, but its been happening multiple times per day and is a pretty big nuisance. Also unrelated question: In my itunes using column view whenever I select an artist it snaps back to the top of the list, though still selecting the artist. Its a weird bug, anyone else having this happen?

Mac Pro :: Multiple Video Cards And VMware-DirectX Or Games Are Not Working Well?

Sep 16, 2009

Both cards in OSX are reported as they should be and show acceleration, etc.I've noticed that the couple of games I've tried on the OSX side don't work right (well don't display right anyway) plus more bothersome is the fact that in VMware Fusion (2.05) running XP with DirectX acceleration turned on for the virtual machine, *any* software that runs and tries to use DirectX makes Fusion throw an error about the virtual machine performing invalid operations. (the error is thrown on the OSX side, not in the XP virtual machine)

Applications :: Finding List Of Apps For MAC?

Sep 5, 2010

I really wanted to make this topic sticky if possible.

There are many people out here who create a lot of posts asking about what kind of app are good and what do they do ?. There are dozens of videos on youtube on whats in your doc (most of which are outdated).

Honestly I think if people could share what software they have on their macs (both free and payed), with a description of what is does, would help thousands of new mac owners. I looked through the topic on the very top with software recommendations, but it does look a bit dull with only 13 replies that point you to websites where you get bombarded by the insane quantity of software listed there with no proper advice.

I will list my software tomorrow once I get my MBP from repair.

Hardware :: Finding List Of Speakers That You Can Connect An Airport Express

Aug 2, 2010

I have been trying to do some research on a pair of speakers that I can use around the house. Right now, I just have my iMac speakers and some headphones.

Optimally I would like to have a pair of speakers set in the living room that I can automatically wirelessly stream my iTunes music to.

Right now the only ones that I have seen (via this forum and on the web) that I can directly connect an Airport Express to are the AudioEngine A5. I believe with these you literally plug the airport express to the back of them, if I understand them correctly.

Is there a list somewhere of speakers that are Airport Express enabled or can others provide alternatives to the AudioEngine A5?
