Mac users can now enjoy most 3D Windows games

This will be pretty awesome. Supposedly it will be utilizing the new PCI-SIG standard external PCI-Express cable. Awesome way to free up space inside your case, save power drain on your main PSU, and help keep a much better laminar airflow inside the case. I can see a lot of good things coming from a setup like this. :yumyum:
