Wewt, rejoice! I guess they already have a compatible version with the Mac Pro. nVidia needs to make a Mac Pro compatible 8800GTX.

Hmm... near as I remember, the only difference between cards for Mac and PC now is the BIOS. So to save money some people have just bought a normal card (7800GT's in this case) and flashed the BIOS and it worked just fine in their Macs...

That looks like a very nice GFX card for a laptop.
