This is quick and dirty how-to to get Quartz Extreme and Core Image at full resolution working on OSx86 (with OSX 10.4.8) a nVidia 7600gt 256MB card.

Follow the simple insructions below and you can’t go wrong:

    Install OSx86 with the optional Natit package
    Once booted find your card identifier by adding the DeviceID and VendorID together to get a string (mine is 0x02e110de)
    Edit the corresponding <string> tag for the IOPCIMatch key in these four packages (in /System/Library/Extensions)
        Geforce.kext
        NVDANV40Hal.kext
        NVDANV30Hal.kext
        NVDAResman.kext

Before
    <key>IOPCIMatch</key>
    <string>0x00000000&0x0000ffff</string>
   
Quote
After
    <key>IOPCIMatch</key>
    <string>0x02e010de&0x0000ffff</string>

    If the key has a number of values in the string tag, just add 0x02e010de&0x0000ffff to the start of the list.
    You now need to flush the kext cache so run the following:
    sudo rm /System/Library/Extensions.*
    Now reboot and enjoy the goodness of Mac OSx86 :)

I cannot claim the credit for this, I got it from this forum here http://www.osxx86.info/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=1514 by a post by sinjon (shot mate ;) )
