Having an issue with Gigabyte GTX 660: Can't get dual monitors.
One monitor is 23in and the other 20in. Both Apple cinema dvi-d

This is a fresh install of 10.8.3 with GraphicsEnabler set on "No"
Have not installed Nvidia drivers.

Any suggestions? Should I use the Nvidia drivers?

Thanks

From what I've read, it's a good idea to use the nVidia drivers, even if Apple has built-in support for a particular video card in your version of Mac OS. I have an EVGA GTX 660 SC (Best Buy's version of this card) and I use nVidia's drivers. Works fine with 10.8.3.

I have a gtx 660 and I have problems with games being very choppy even with high frame rate.

I am not sure how to do it on a mac, but if you enable VSYNC that should clear up "choppiness" issues you have when you are achieving high frame rates. Most of the time you can find a vsync setting in the graphic options in the game you're trying to play.

The only 10.8.3 drivers for the NVIDIA cards at this time is Apple's.

The NVIDIA download is for 10.8.2 only and is older (304.00.05f02) than what is in 10.8.3 (304.10.65f03)

I defer to your expertise. I sit corrected. Thanks for the info. I wasn't aware of that.

Hello there,

With 10.8.3 installed, GA-Z77M-D3H-MVP, and the Geforce GTX 650Ti 1Gb, everything seems to work, with GraphicsEnabler=No, but absolutely no acceleration. So, choppiness, can't watch videos, not even Youtube, just very slow video.

I'm on an Apple Cinema Display 30", on the DVI-Dual Link output. Everything else works, ethernet, bluetooth, etc., but no graphics acceleration!

I can't open Aperture because I get the warning for unsupported card.

Any possible ideas?

Thank you in advance!
