Hi guys it's me again XD I have a question for you:

Which is the Best Video Card Full compatible (and full working) with OSX Lion?
(Full working without many tweaks)

PS I'll use it on 3d graphic programs like Autocad, Rhino, c4d... on the mac side

but I would use it with battlefield3 on the PC side (which I want to run at max settings on a single monitor)

It would be SUPER if the card had a display port to connect the LEDCinema Display I'm planning to buy...

price for the card is not a problem.

Great question!

Tony's guide showcases the ATi 6870, which I am ordering from Amazon when making my 2009 Mac Pro replacement (the old Mac Pro becoming a file server, hosting and running a number of Windows Server VMs).

The new build I'm going to make is for 3D rendering, Photoshop, and Dreamweaver (Web design).

Clicking directly on the hardware choices he's shown (amazon/newegg) helps him as well, so I recommend going this route.

And Ecoarena makes a good point or two as well, about possible longevity issues:

6850 works OOB without GraphicsEnabler. 6540, too. Not sure about higher cards, but all the chips Apple uses in their own Macs do work with Lion, of course. :thumbup:
