hello all! this forum is awesome and i appreciate any help you guys can give!  ive been reading and reading and i think im pretty sure i can figure things out...but my situation is.   i have a mac pro 3,1 running 10.6.8, and it MUST stay like that for some time (its a recording studio computer)  now i have aquired a XFX ATI Radeon HD 5870 (HD-587X-ZNDC) for almost nothing.   now i DONT need a boot screen, i dont really need dvd player functionality. and dont even NEED it to work for mac os, (the 2600xt) works fine for audio work!  Wink  and after doing alot of reading about the 5870s and differend OSs...ive only gotten more confused about lion and the 5870 cards, if lion makes an unflashed pc card work (does it?), could i potentially dual boot/tri boot,   do audio recording on SL, and games in lion/windows and not have to flash at all?     or should i go ahead and just do the flash procedure thats in this forum for the 5870?   
thanks! and sorry for the noobish questions!
