Wait to see if the next nVidia drivers update for OS X gives support. Expect that to happen the next working day following the release by Apple of Yosemite 10.10.2 - Perhaps next week?

I got mine working with the Web Drivers. The Default drivers caused slowness and drawing issues. re-downloading games now :D (I was working with HD 4000 before)

word to the wise: If you had no card installed like me (or maybe even if you did) get the nvidia Cuda drivers and Webdrivers first, install them and then put the card in. Boot/Kernel flags did nothing for me so I had to take it out and do that part. If you get the slowness/drawing issues like I did open the OSX System prefs and in the Nvidia Panel make sure the Web Drivers are checked and not the Defaults. This could be basic *derp* level info, but I got so excited I just plugged it in and expected to go.
