First post here so sorry if this question has been asked and asked but I have searched extensively and haven't found a conclusive answer. I am moving to a new job where the company uses only macs so I thought it would be a good idea to get to grips with OS X. I've got Mountain Lion running in Virtual Box but I want to be able to do more things than the virtual machine lets me so I am thinking of dual booting Mac OS X with Windows. I have a PC i've built myself and am about to wipe it so I can start afresh with both Windows and OS X but I have read that I may run into some problems regarding my graphics card.


My specs are as follows:

Asus P8P67 Pro Mobo

Intel 2500k CPU

2 x ATI Radeon 6950 HD 2GB GPU

64gb SSD, 2TB and 1TB hard drives

4gb ram


As far as I have been able to gather, I shouldn't have problems with my mobo or CPU but I am likely to have problems with the graphics cards. As i'm on a P67 mobo I don't have integrated graphics so will I need to use another compatible GPU to install? If so, can you recommend a really cheap one that I can use just for this? I have read conflicting things and thought maybe that the 6900 cards are now supported by mountain lion but I may have been mistaken.


Any help on this would be great and if there are any other issues with my system, please let me know. Thanks

Disregard last post. 6900 SHOULD be supported. 

If you want to replace a GPU, I'd google a list of GPUs that work out of the box.
Here's a good thread to get you started.
