YOU WONT’T GET A BOOTSCREEN on the “non-apple” Card c23bb7df557efdeed3757d3badb7d07eNOR WILL YOU GET PCI 2.0 in BootCamp. And I had to give up two hard-drive bays for the additional Power. I strongly recommend you not to use splitter connecting both cards just to two PCIE 6Pin plugs on the motherboard. I used the following cable:

  1. Hello,
    these days I am informing to install the second video card.
    I own Mac Pro 8-Core 2.4 MC561LL / A Mid 2010
    1 SSD
    1 hardisk
    2 hardisk in raid 1.
    I had to replace the original ATI Radeon because it is burned,
    and I purchased the Nvidia GTX 770 4 GB flashed for mac from “macvidcards”.

    Now I’d like to buy me a Nvidia GTX 980 Ti 6 GB without flash, although not recognized in that important after booting functions for 3D software I use.

    From “macvidcards” it costs € 893 with customs fee
    while on amazon.it they are much less, though I do not know what brand to buy, and ask you some advice …

    I have read that I need an additional power supply + PCI Express …?

    You have used the additional supply by removing 2 dare, right?
