Is the radeon hd 5770 mac x 10.8.0 or 10.8.2 OoB (out of box) compatible with Mountain Lion :think: ? I would think so do to they use these cards in macs as a standard and also still sell them as upgrades on the apple store :thumbup: . I basically just want to now for sure if its going to work almost 100% without any tweaks or kext. edits. Any advice would be awesome as to I cant seem to find any info on the web for these in hackintoshes :| .

I am using a PowerColor Radeon 5770 and it is working OOB from 10.6.6 up to 10.8.2. What specific 5770 brand do you have or planning to get?

Radeon 5770 should be working OOB without any problem using Chimera + GraphicsEnabler=Yes. Give it a go and you will find out. If there's any issue, post your question in the Graphic forum.

Good luck.
