That means that officially they don't support the 700 series?
Officially no, but they support the 680 for Mac, which is Kepler based. So that said, if your 700 series card is Kepler based- (760, 770, 780, 780 Ti) you should be ok.

Hmm- not sure- I looked at the script, and it only mentions NVRAM- what version of Chameleon are you using?

So what would the potential benefits of installing these nVidia drivers be over the stock 10.9.2 ones? I already installed the most recent CUDA driver? And also what are the risks of installing them? I always like to keep up to date with things. But I'm unsure in this case if the risk is worth the reward. If any reward.

They tend to perform better than the native support (Mavericks 10.9.2)
But I'm still having issues with AGPM Suppport for my 480 gtx with both web driver and/or native driver :(

Installed the udpate. It defaults to the OS X driver version and the nvidia one is not selectable even after changing it and restarting. cuda pane also updated earlier, that went fine, but now it tells me it needs an update even though it's up to date.

Install method for me is clover, f14 bios on z77x-ud5h, full uefi, nothing in s/l/e, real nvram working.
