One more reason never to buy an Apple product.
It has an Intel proc and uses PCIe (like a PC), but you cannot install a standart GeForce or Radeon graphic card in it. You need a special version for which you have to pay a premium.

No no no, if you know what your doing you can buy a PC version of the card and just flash the EFI and it will work on a mac. Theres a thousand different sites out there that will explain how to do it.

No it is possible to put a regular NVIDEO 6xx card in a Mac Pro with OSX 10.8.3.

I have a Mac Pro 3.1 from early 2008 and just pluged in a "PC" ASUS 660ti.

The only thing that does not work is the visual boot screens. The OS works fine, also CUDA

- This card delivers truly game-changing performance that taps into the powerful new GeForce architecture to redefine smooth, seamless, lifelike gaming

hmmm sounds like a 120hz monitor

- Wonder in amazement as the 120Hz display produces an easily observable higher fluidity in the animation.

- The ASUS VG236H was my first exposure to 120Hz refresh displays that aren’t CRTs, and the difference is about as subtle as a dump truck driving through your living room.
