A very comprehensive review – but what about the two cards that Apple ships (as opposed to third party cards)?

From what I understand you're stuck with the options from Apple right now. Apple uses the standard PCI Express slots in their new Pros, but the issue is with drivers. I don't believe any manufacturer at this point is offering drivers that are compatable with the Mac Pros (although, I expect this will change in the not too distant future). I believe they offer the ATI X1900XTX as well... which is an excellent card.

Both are low end (gaming) cards with the 6600 as a former midrange and the 7300 as a new budget card. Not much of a difference between them and I do not think you can swap them anyhow between Intel and PPC mac towers. So making a true comparison is impossible.
