Hi All

I have a nice hackingtosh running now.
I was using a 8800GTS, but found it more trouble than it was worth. Now on a 256mb 9500GT, which works fine....

A few things:
- I was using some geforce drivers before for the 8800GTS - do these need removing, and if so how (was installed by the Kext Utility)
- What are the 'best' drivers for the 9500GT. It works, but isn't 100% smooth (The graphics are enabled, and do get the ripple etc)
- What other non incredibly expensive graphics cards work OOB? (Must support Dual DVI / multi monitor etc)

Thanks all!

Here is the database for graphic cards

wiki/index.php/Graphics_Card_Database

As for Nvidia drivers/kexts, they are already loaded on your machine
(they can be tweaked).....

some people have tweaked their graphic card drivers/kexts for Nvidia, check throughout
the forum to see what they did and what values they used
(I believe it was the 550/560 gtx Nvidia cards in particular and also changing values in
the applegraphicspowermanagement kext)

Changing your smbios-model identifier may help also ....


cheers
