Ciao Ragazzi,scusatemi,ho bisogno di un consiglio. Sto per costruirmi il mio primo hackintosh da zero e sono indeciso nella scelta dei componenti. Ora sto usando una geforce 9300ge e con un test mi da 2.7 fps... Vorrei prendere qualcosa di altamente compatibile sia come pc che come mac. E avevo pensato: questa scheda madre: ASUS P9X79 PRO Scheda Madre: Amazon.it: Elettronica questa scheda video: XFX ATI Radeon 1GB 5770 PCI-E 2.0 per l'audio io ho la fissa di farci musica e avrei già una roland quadcapture con i driver per mac. Cerco di renderlo + vicino possibile al mac pro... voi cosa mi consigliate? Grazie in anticipo.
Greetings all~ Is it possible to install an ATI 7970 or GTX 670/680 and make it work correctly on a 2009 Mac Pro (Nehalem)? Notes: I presently have OS X 10.7.4 installed but I am going to install 10.8.1 soon, probably (currently testing Mountain Lion on this laptop). My existing card is the NVIDIA 285 GTX. On Bootcamp I have Windows 7 installed. I do have the ability to boot the Mac Pro in "firewire target disk" mode and access its internal drives from my MacBook Pro, and I have a spare internal drive to use as a tester, so I am not afraid of trying some different things. Related questions: In order that I can return the graphics card In case this experiment fails, where should I purchase the graphics card? Do Best Buy or Fry's still have decent return policies on open hardware? It's been years since I've bought anything like this. Also, not to sound paranoid, is there any risk of damaging the Mac Pro by using a card that might draw too much power from its motherboard power socket? This computer does have a 1500W power supply, so I would be somewhat shocked if I came anywhere near that kind of draw... but I just figured I'd ask...
Ok, I am moving from my real Mac Pro to a hackintosh I am building. I would love to use my old Hard Drive and just make it bootable in my hackintosh. Is there a guide that will tell me how to do this? Or am I going to be better off doing a clean install? I really don't want to do that, because I have a crap ton of software installed and I don't want to spend hours going through all that again.
