    Not a 5,1, but older - I'm using MC 8.6.4 on a Mac Pro 3,1 and it's working fine with an old driver - 10.4.9.

    Thanks for your quick response.  Does the card seem pretty responsive?  I know with my old Matrox Box, it hasn't been as solid as it used to be with more recent software builds.

    Thanks, JIM.

    I'd say it feels responsive - I generally don't find myself thinking about it much, I just use it - so that's probably a good sign.  The system itself is sometimes more of a frustration, but that's independent of the card.

    Thanks for your response. I'm trying to find a decent solution to replace my Matrox box (which seems to be bricked by the latest MC builds). Would only use it as a client monitor output -- hoping to milk another year or more out of my tower, which has had pretty much every other upgrade you can imagine over its 6+ year lifespan. (Never thought I'd have a work machine last that long!)

    That is, of course, assuming Apple doesn't release a TB3 MacPro before then! 😜

    Best, JIM
