One thing I noticed though is that once AHCI is enabled, the the bootcamp control panel refuses to come up since ...

Windows Experience is at 5.9 for the Velociraptor, I think it's higher than what I remember, but maybe it's wishful thinking...

Re: Mac Pro 2006 Upgrade

Since posting the above I actually bought an official HD 5870 from Apple (mostly so I could use my mini DisplayPort equipped LED display without an adapter), but the performance is otherwise identical to a flashed card. I've found it to be much faster than the 4870 for gaming and general 3D usage i...
