Help needed to decide on a graphics card for old Mac Pro

Sep 22, 2016 at 10:05 PM
First off, I'm new to macs, fairly new to emulators and brand new to this forum.

I just bought a Mac Pro from 2006. 2 dual core processor. 12gb of RAM.

I am in need of a new GPU just to be able to switch kernels and get the latest OSX.

I might have an older version of PCSXR with few video options.

I can get the bare minimum graphics in PCSXR while playing Spyro 2. Basically just Pete's OpenGL with the lowest settings. Gameplay is a bit buggy. Cutscenes lose audio. Frame rate averages at about 30.

Anyways, I need an upgrade, but I know that not many cards will work with this computer or perform well, and I don't want to spend more than like 150 if possible. Being able to play PS2 level games would be great too.

Please throw words at me
