Hi,
Yes it's compatible, but some things like audio or ethernet may not be compatible, check around how to install Mountain Lion, it's very very very very very VERY VERY EASYto do since you know how to install Windows 7

Info : Your ati card is compatible but need some trick to get it work properly check here how to do : http://www.insanelym...i-hd-7xxx-1083/
and your Processor have an Intel HD 4000 built in so it's fully compatible :)


Good luck

Heheh, "duel-boot" was obnoxious! :P

The motherboard is fully compatible: even ethernet (

Broadcom BCM57781)

and audio

(Realtek ALC898 Audio Codec)

will work - but will need special kexts - and you have UEFI mode, that's always great!

Start without the 7870: when all is up and working, take a reading about Clover UEFI and try to use the card.

All the best!
