So what exactly is stopping someone from buying the regular, less pricey GTX 285 and using it in their Mac? I don't see many people buying this.

You need a card with EFI instead of a BIOS for it to work in a legit Mac.

HOLY F@#$! NCIX.com - Buy EVGA E-GEFORCE GTX 285 for Mac OS X 648MHZ 1024MB 2.484GHZ GDDR3 PCI-E Dual DVI-I Video Card - 01G-P3-1080-TR In Canada.

Dam expensive.

Although if you built your own mac with EFIX then you could buy the "cheap edition".

Almost 40% more expensive. I am so glade I don't have to pay that.

You can flash some older cards to EFI but I have no idea about the more recent ones.
