    Need a new video card for my MacPro...

    The GeForce 7300GT that came with our MacPro Dual Quad Core is failing. So I am looking for a new one ASAP. I searched around for a list of approved cards but the information is pretty dated and the only card listed for my Mac Pro is the GeForce 7300GT. Does anyone know if there are other compatible cards? Running MC 3.1.12 (i think)

    Thanks,

    Bill

    looks like the 7300 is the one you'll want with the Dual Quad Core

    There is a manufacture defect with this card. It's with the capacitors. Mine died a few weeks ago. I called Apple and they replaced with my applecare warranty. I did a search and found that there are many others with this card and it is a defect. Apple or NVIDIA might replace yours even if you don't have any warranty left.
