I've been following both this thread and the upgrade to 6 thread. The more I read, the more confused I become. I'm thinking it might be genetic. Or maybe 50% genetic and 50% environment. But I'm hoping that if there is a god, she will clarify it all before I utterly lose what's left of my mind.

Several PC GTX cards have drivers in OSX 10.7.3
There is no official support but there are reports of the 470 570 580 working without any software mods besides installing the nvidia drivers
I think the 680 is the one thats calling my name though... but i dont have one to test, yet.

I have an off-the-shelf GTX-570 running in my MacPro 3.1. The CUDA drivers for Mac seem to work with this card and it allowed me to install DaVinci Resolve and FCP X. The downside is no boot screens so if you need to fix a problem that requires your being able to see the boot screens your option is to put another card in the case or put the MacPro into terminal mode to fix a problem using another computer. It also causes Video CoPilot's Optical Flares to reliably crash After Effects if you forget to turn off the GPU acceleration before opening the Optical Flare interface. It does seem to help out in Premier Pro though it's not something I would recommend for most people.
