Assuming you have:
-a 2006 or better MacPro tower
-Snow Leopard 10.6.4 or better installed (for 5870 SW drivers)
-the knowledge to swap a PCI card and plug a couple of cables in to the MacPro's motherboard
You need nothing extra.
(the card ships with 2 6-pin power cords)
According to other posts in this forum, the 5870 works just fine in all MacPro towers.
