I'm running a mid-2010 Mac Pro 5,1 with an NVIDIA Quadro 4000 GPU, [full specs below].
I've been told by RedGiant that I need to upgrade my GPU to something that has at least 4GB VRAM in
order to use many of their apps in a 4K workflow.
But, after a bit of Googling, I see that this is not such a simple operation.
As I understand it, there aren't any natively supported Mac GPU's, and people are speaking about
flashing boards, and who-knows-what.
I would love some expert advice about which GPU is compatible with my system, and what I'd need to do in order to install it.
I've seen the Radeon 580 [4GB or 8GB] come up often - but perhaps there are
better options I'm not aware of.
Thanks so much in advance.

Thanks a lot, will check it out.
