Cards work with apple hardware using boot camp?

If I buy a card for my Mac Pro desktop, when it says its not compible with mac, does that mean the mac os, meaning can i buy it and still use it with my windows through boot camp?

As long as there is a Windows Driver for it, yes you can. (I wouldn't recomend replacing CPU because of the way Macs boot).

Alright thanks, and I didnt plan on replacing the CPU, only get a new GFX card, and some more RAM (buying RAM through apple is almost 300% more expensive i hear)

A new GPU should be fine. If you are looking to buy RAM make sure it says designed to run on Mac Pro + whatever year it was made or something to that extent. Try and avoid RAM which seams to be the right kind but doesn't specify a type of Computer (oh and 300% could be classed as an understatement, my MacBook's RAM
upgrapde cost 90 off Amazon but would have cost nearly 500 through Apple (this was at the time they may be cheaper now though))

I wish you the best of luck

Its not any cheaper...

I could upgrade from 6 GB to 16 GB for 500$. Searched a bit, and could get it for about <200$
