Hi,

I've just put together my new build with what I thought were 100% compatible parts but I can't boot with the graphics card in.

The main bits are:

i5 3570k
Gigabyte ga-z77x-ud5h - latest bios
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Windforce 2X NVIDIA Graphics Card - 2GB
8gb ram

I can boot, install, run mountain lion fine with the hd4000 graphics but as soon as the gtx660 gets involved nothing works.

I tried various boot flags and the nvidia drivers for mac but nothing helped.

Should I just send it back and get something others have reported works 100% ?

Any advice would be great, thanks.

Are you booting with:
GraphicsEnabler=No -v
?

Here's a succes story:
Slugnet's Video Editor - GA-Z77X-UD5H, i7-3770k, Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Ti

GTX660 should be very compatabile.

Yea I tried that, no luck. I spent a lot of time looking through that thread before I bought my parts, except for getting a plain 660 instead of the ti version. :confused:

The GTX660 has a GK106 GPU (not supported). And you don't know for sure if it will be supported in the future? You can wait or return it. At this moment all GT/GTX6XX are working, only yours not AFAIK.
But which one to choose GTX650 or GTX660ti? And before buying/returning search first for a success story :)
