Hi..., Good question.
Let me add some words for your better understanding what I recovered for enabling my HD7970 graphic board within my OSX 10.8.3 environment.

1. My display monitor is EIZO S2243W. It has multiple inputs - DVI x1, Displayport x1, RGB x1, and the user can select the input source via pushing the "S" button.

2. For my convenient \easy operation, I made the setup for "Display screen resolution" as below.
- Primary(main) display : S2243 Display port from HD7970
- Secondary display : S2243 Digital (DVI) from HD6870

Above is enough for your question ?

Haha Really thank you for your adviece Faster4Run.

I will try tonight.

my computer has two dvi ports and HDMI, so your answer is really great for me.

the hackintosh freezes when i install menu bar extension of HWMonitor or run Heaven 4.0 ... is that happening to you?

I got the same issue with a sapphire 7970 on asrock p67 extreme 4 gen3.
desktop, firefox, chrome are stable tough.

We all are waiting for the new chimera ...

Same here. Trying to get together a working and useable dual boot system (10.8.3 for work and Windows for gaming) but cant get osx to boot from the HD.
Tryed Chameleon, Chimera and Clover but none of them work. Sleep trick doesnt work either so I have a second monitor connected to the internal HD4000 in order to see the login screen. Besides that everything works fine, acceleration etc... Going to that whole process everytime however makes it a no go still for me...We need a new Chimera!

Yes I did notice that sapphire card... the switch to go back and forth between mac and pc mode bios is a nice feature!

they must have tested it so, it must perform well... right?

--------------------------------------------

Apparently MAC owners are not overly impressed with the SAPPHIRE 100352MAC

Note: The 100352MAC drivers appear to be using the native 10.8.3 drivers ..

Other Thoughts: I got the card yesterday... The drivers are already included on Mac OS X 10.8.3.
I am not a gamer or do much video.
I am a Pro Photographer and use Photoshop CS6 and Aperture 3.
My Mac Pro has the fastest SSD in the market, the 1TB OWC accelsior and 32GB of RAM hooked up to 2 27" Apple LED Cinema Displays, one rotated at 90-degrees.
I had some flickering and stuttering on the vertical display with my old Radeon 5770. It is faster on the 7950 but it still struggles.
I don't know if the problem is the "Old" 2010 5,1 Mac Pro with PCIe 2.0 vs the card's PCIe 3.0 but until Apple decides to upgrade the Mac Pro Line, $500 for a little faster video card doesn't work for me.
I ran some Xbench and Geebench tests and the numbers are almost identical. Even some video tests are actually faster on the 3 year old 5770 with just 1GB.

I have an Asus 7850 w/ 2GB DDR5 in my Windows machine and am looking forward to the rest of my hardware to arrive so I may start my first Hack Pro build. I'm looking forward to it and at the same time I hope my card will work by the finish of assembly. Can you guys suggest some threads for me to start out reading? Thanks.
