Im having the same problem. Purchased a GTX 970 EVGA superclocked, placed it inside my mac pro 2010 5,1 and nothing showed up. Gladly, a user from macrumors suggested that I tried out your method of screen sharing to access my Mac Pro and follow the commands specified in step 24 (http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/frequently-asked-questions-about-nvidia-pc-n on-efi-graphics-cards.1440150/) of this thread.

Ore just connect a few extra thunderbolt storage drives.

Check this out and see if it works out and get back to me since I am also interested. Could you also describe your screen sharing method better for me please? Im going to do this today and crossing my fingers for it to work.

EVGA Nvidia Geforce GTX 970 4GB FTW works in 2008 Mac Pro
This is mainly information and conformation for the Mac Pro users who are wanting to upgrade their graphics card to give their machine a new lease of life, and keep it in line with current & future technology.
I'm using a 2008 2.8ghz 8-core 3,1 Mac Pro. OSX Yosemite 10.10.2 with Nvidia CUDA driver: 6.5.46 and Web Driver 343.02.02f01 (will also work with 10.10.1 with previous CUDA and Web Drivers for 10.10.1).
This card will ONLY work on Yosemite, anything earlier will not work.
One thing which is great about this card is that it only uses two 6 pin PCI-e cables, as opposed to a lot of high end cards having either one 6pin and one 8 pin or two 8pins. The GTX 970 only uses 145W.
I installed it in PCI-e port 2.
I have tried both DVI ports and the HDMI port and can confirm they work (simultaneously), don't have a display port adaptor to test the display port, but I'm sure it probably works.
The only main disadvantage to using these non Mac cards is that you lose the boot screen, which isn't much of a problem, and if your like me, and have a SSD, you probably only saw the boot screen for about 3 seconds anyway. If you need to boot into recovery mode for any reason, you will have to put in the original graphics card to access recovery mode. So if you were thinking of selling the original card, you might want to think twice! Also when upgrading from 10.10.1 to 10.10.2, I had to put the original card back in to upgrade the Nvidia drivers.
Some quick benchmark figures from Unigine Heaven Benchmark 4.0:
Original 8800 GT 512mb (Old Card) Vs New GTX 970 FTW 4GB - Basic Setting:
8800GT:
FPS: 20.6
Score: 518
Min FPS: 6.8
Max FPS: 42.4
GTX 970 FTW:
FPS: 54.0
Score: 1360
Min FPS: 10.0
Max FPS: 98.4
GTX 970 FTW 4GB - Every setting maxed out 1920x1200 Full Screen (8800GT couldn't manage 1 FPS so no results)
FPS: 38.3
Score: 965
Min FPS: 8.0
Max FPS: 79.2
The card is capable of more than this, but its probably because it is limited to PCI-e 2 on the Mac Pro, and the drivers will not be as comprehensive as those for Windows.
Hope this helps people who are deciding on upgrading the graphics card in their Mac Pro.
