            this....and last I read the 660ti was better than the radeon equivalent. Regardless I have the gigabyte OC version and that freaking thing is quiet as hell, which is something I never new I cared about until I had it.

                Nvidia won't release the specifications for any of their graphics cards, therefore, not any operating systems have non-propiertary DRI support for their cards. Quite a dilemma.

                Since you are using a MAC.



                EDIT: Oh, From MAC...You will be fine with a nVidia then if you decide to go that route.

                        Yeah I got the MSI Power Edition 660ti. It should be here on Wednesday. All that really matters is that it's powerful enough to shred any current game on high settings, and the 660ti is in combination with the overclocked i5-3570K I have.
