  13. If everything goes well, you should be able to see your login screen, go ahead and login, if you don;t have graphics acceleration, go ahead and download the nVidia web drivers, you can do it through a usb by using another mac or do it through your Mac Pro, it may just be a pain in the butt to use.

결론

Your Mac Pro (Running OS X 10.8.5 or above) should be recognizing your new GTX 660, when the PCI Express utility pops up (or open it manually by searching in spotlight "PCI Utility"), make sure to get your GTX 660 to the highest possible speed (8x or 16x), your GTX 660 should be in PCI Slot 1 unless otherwise. If you have an extra card in your PCI Slot(s), try to use the PCI Utility to make both cards run at 8x speeds, but is reccomended to only have the GTX 660 in the PCI bay's so you can run it at the max speed it can go. The example used in this guide is my very own Mac Pro 1,1 (2.66 gHz D Core Xeon's, 12GB DDR2 Ram, (now) GTX 660 By Asus, and a 1TB HDD 5200RPM) Running Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 (Update Pending) this guide should work in any first generation esk Mac Pro (2006-2008) but should also work in 2009-2012 but not sure completely because i dont own one personally.
