I don't like to be the first one to reply to this! Seriously more people should be aware of this problem. I'm sure there's a lot more people having a Hackintosh OR a Mac Pro with GTX 780. I hope it doesn't get pushed around between Nvidia and Apple, and I hope they do more than just blame each other for this, instead of both getting to work and SOLVE it. This is one of the highest end GPUs of the newest GTX series, and this is the newest OS which Apple calls "the most advanced". Dude! Apple either include this in an update patch, or Nvidia release a new driver. We're (I'm) ranting here on tonymacx86.com's Hackintosh forum, but there are same posts on geforce.com as well! I'm pretty sure there are people reflecting the same issue (mainly people using Mac Pros) on discussions.apple.com too. DO NOT IGNORE THIS.

GTX 780 should be marked "not fully compliant with Mavericks" in Buyer's Guide. Personally I bought this graphic card based on the "Buyer's Guide". Nowhere is writing that "MS Office for Mac" and even "Preview" crashes with GTX 780.
Hope this comment will help the hackintosh community.

Apple isn't gonna add support for _ANY_ PC graphics cards, never gonna happen.

This petition isn't to Apple, it's to Nvidia. Nvidia has Geforce mainstream support for Windows 8.1, 8, VISTA and XP. But then goes on to support Liunx 32-bit & 64-bit, (EVEN ARM 32-bit), AND SOLARIS AND FREEBSD. Considering how many people in the entertainment industry use mac and either have been or are about to be Nvidia customers because of the way CUDA works with Adobe, they should be on this. No just for the people that already bought it but for the potential customers. I seriously doubt this new Mac Pro design will stick and even if it does this means the there really are a lot of people that will be turning to upgrading their existing Mac Pro instead of buying something that can't be upgraded.

I don't think you understand. Why would nVidia or Apple support _PC_ Graphics cards? PC cards don't even have the required AppleEFI that is needed to work in a real Mac and you know they won't add OSX support for a non Mac card as Apple won't be to happy with them. I really don't understand what it is you expect out of this.

If that is true then why does this exist?
