Greetings, I have a great working hackintosh used for video editing. Works flawlessly due to tonymacx86.com
Currently have Snow Leopard 10.6.8, GA-X58A-UD3R Rev 2.0, i7-940, EVGA GTX 460 768MB.

I want to upgrade to a 2 gig card that definitely works with the basics that I now have.
I can change DSDT's etc, but at the moment don't have time to rebuild the wheel.

Also, looking for a graphics card that would work in my current 10.6.8 OSX, but also work when I upgrade to Mountain Lion.

Would any of the following cards work with my current build? Any other suggestions?
GTX 560 2 gigs
GTX 560 ti 2 gigs
GTX 570 2 gigs
GTX 670 2 gigs
GTX 660 ti 2 gigs

Thank you very much

No

ATI/AMD HD6870 is most powerful card supported by both 10.6.8 and 10.8.x. You might find a used/refurbished one somewhere
GTX2xx series was highest nVidia gfx cards in 10.6.8. You might find a used/refurbished one somewhere
