New Nvidia Quadro/GeForce Drivers for OS X 10.8.5 (12F45) and CUDA Update
Monday's news had a report from a Mac Pro/Nvidia card user that the (Sept. 19th) Nvidia Driver Update for OS X 10.8.5 (12F37) were broken by the OS X 10.8.5 Supplemental Update. (That is OS X 10.8.5 build 12F45.) Today (10/9) he wrote about another driver update (notice) via popup from the previous install's web check:

"New Nvidia driver for 10.8.5 Supplemental restores functionality
Recently I send you a mail, describing a problem with Nvidia drivers (for build 12F37) after updating to the latest supplemental OS update (12F45).
   Yesterday, a friendly window popped up, asking me to download a new Nvidia Geforce driver. After finishing, I can use the NVidia driver again within 10.8.5. (12F45)
Just for completion.
Kind regards, Jörg"

Thanks Jörg. After getting his mail I checked the Nvidia drivers download page again and there is now a new update available (as well as a later Cuda version). See Quadro & GeForce Mac OS X (12F45) Driver Release 313.01.03f02 which also refers to a later CUDA driver - v5.5.25.
[10/23/2013 Update: Here's a newer version - CUDA v5.5.28 for Mac OS X.]
(The Driver page's Additional Info tabs have install info.)
