Replacing spent graphics card

I want to replace a graphics card that stopped functioning on my 2010 Mac Pro, serial number CK11502VHF7. Apple don’t make new ones for this model anymore so I have to get a used card from ebay. My only problem is the prices vary significantly from seller to seller for what seems to be essentially the same thing. I would be really grateful if someone could advise me how to choose from this lot:

Thanks Isaac. Surely sellers would check what price other sellers are selling at so there would not be such a discrepancy ? This one looks like a good deal, the only problem is you have no idea how much wear is on it and how long it’s likely to last (taking a lot on trust):



Well the guess i refer to is based on what they think they can get for it, not likely a depreciated value derived from hours of use vs expected life.

If you don't mind spending a bit more, I would recommend a refurbished or recertified card, like this one on newegg:


At the very least you will have a 30 day return policy.


Nothing coming up in that link - is this a US company ? I'm in Dublin, Ireland, so will only buy from UK or Europe.


Yes, Newegg is US based. The link was working, but it looks like the product listing was removed after I shared it.


Do you need a full 1GB card or will a 512 mb work?

First off, the pricing variance is because any cards you are considering are likely used or new ‘old stock’ so the sellers are basically guessing at the value. Personally I would look for refurbished or unopened stock, as many used graphics cards were used hard by crypto miners and don’t have much life left.

Secondly, there is a nice guide on compatible graphics cards for MacPro systems here:
