Hi guys,

 
I have a mac pro mid 2010 5,1 that needed a better GPU to run resolve. I got a GTX780 ti but the Mac screen is black once its turned on. I realise I may not be in the right area for this but I'm desperate at this stage. Why is this happening, and once I get it ready, will it be compatible with resolve? I talked to a guy who mentioned openCL and Cuda? Bit lost..... Any help appreciated!

You can not use GPUs not authorized by Apple because unlike Windows, Mac has very specific graphics driver. You also voided the warranty because you opened it.

 

The best thing you can do is, put the older GPU back in the Mac Pro, or buy a new Mac Pro.

Not true. Not to mention that a 2010 Mac Pro would be WAY out of warranty anyway...even if one bought the AppleCare extended warranty.

Where did you buy the graphics card? From just a "PC" store?

The problem is that unlike Windows machines, not all graphics cards are compatible with a Mac Pro. You have to buy a compatible graphics card. This page should help:
