In the next 1-2 days I will recieve my new EVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW.
Currently I am using OSX 10.7.4 with an flashed for Mac ATI HD 5870.

What is the easiest way to get the 670 working? I would like to continue working with Lion, because I have to finish my thesis and am afraid of Mountain Lion (which is already running fine on my MacBook Air).
Can i install the Kepler driver from 10.7.5 or Retina, set GraphicsEnabler=No and boot with the new Card?

Or would be Mountain Lion much easier? How can I do this:
You may have to type extra command line flags to reach the installer. If you get a black screen, white screen, or flickering, reboot and try one of these options. You can type or hit arrow-down to access boot options.

Unsupported graphics or NVIDIA 6xx Series - type GraphicsEnabler=No

Is this during the selection of the booting device?
