About:

Mac OS X supports the majority of Nvidia and AMD GPU’s. Then there are so many brands offering the same cards. So how to choose which card to purchase and which brand? Another thing to consider is what you plan to do with you system and what you may want to do with your system latter on. Most users do not need raw GPU power which brings up to the PNY GTX 660 Ti. The GTX 660 Ti brings low cost and high end performance together. At a price of $229.99 (After MIR) this card can fit into any users budget.

With the AMD 7xxx Series  drives having white screen issues under Hackintoshes it makes it quite apparent that the latest AMD offering are not ready for main stream users. That said we look to Nvidia to fill the needs of everyday users.
