I currently have a 2012 Mac Pro, the last of the towers as it's known, and I'm looking to do some upgrading. I initially tried to do some research on my own, but I have very little to no experience with computer hardware, and I'm unable to make sense out of the numbers and charts I've been reading. Hence, I'm here asking for help!
I have exactly $1000 to spend on this upgrade, so the card that I choose needs to be no more than $900, leaving room for taxes. I also need a card that will work both with OSX and Win 10 as my comp is dual booted.
I believe I am currently using the ATI Radeon HD 5870, not at home to check atm.
From what I've seen, the suggested cards seem to be...
AMD Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 Mac Edition ($550)
PNY Nvidia Quadro K5000 ($1500+)
That said, all the sites I've been looking at seem to be quite outdated, most wrote 2-3 years ago, so I was wondering if there are any newer cards that would fit into that perfect zone between the two cards mentioned above, both in price and performance.
Any help would be massively appreciated, thank you guys so much! <3
