Dose anybody have advice on graphics card for a mac pro that works on sketchup

Please ensure that the video card driver supports OpenGL version 2.0 or higher (

Thanks for the reply everybody. I ordered a new card over weekend. Should be here soon. It’s a Sapphire HD 7950 w/ 3GB of memory.


I see that you got a Sapphire HD 7950 w/ 3GB. I am looking to to up-grade my MacPro with better graphics, and wonder if you are happy with your purchase?

Can anyone speak to using Nvidia 3d glasses and Sketchup ?

Looking to do so on my mac. Much thanks
