Hey guys,

Is this model of 5870
EAH5870/2DIS/1GD5 compatiable with a mac? I would like to give this as a gift to a friend who has a mac.


Thanks

As far as I am aware, for a graphics card to work in a Mac as the primary card it needs an EFI compatible ROM.. Perhaps that may have changed, but the last time I looked into this that was the case.

Now, I do recall reading something about using gfx cards with BIOS compatible ROMs as secondary cards and getting it dragged in on the coattails of the primary card that is EFI compatible.... but I never looked much into that part.
