Hi, Im fairly new to this and have only been viewing tonymacx86 and insanelymac_ since Apple's poor update to the Mac Pro at the beginning of the week. I have been holding out buying a new one for the last 6 months. Im now seriously considering a Hakintosh.
I am a visualiser using Photoshop and Cinema 4D, some renders take 25 hours and Photoshop gets up to 130-150GB Scratch disk so I need a rapid machine.
I will keep my Current Mac Pro for pretty much all email/Photoshop so I can work on one whilst the other is rendering.
I've been looking at the ProMAX One models which look ideal but I'd still need to hakintosh it!
I dont need any Raid setups just a very fast machine thats stable and i have to stick with OS X or else I will have to buy PC versions of all my software which will come to $6-7k extra
I have a healthy budget $6-8k and would like something similar to what was listed on another forum 128GB RAM and 16 cores / 32 threads X9DAI" post but I read the guy was thinking of swapping mobo's
Any advice/help would be very much appreciated:
• Motherboard ??
• 2 x Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2690
• NVIDA Quadro 4000
• 128GB RAM would EEC be the best option??
• Nice good quality simple chassis similar to a Mac pro
And Im hoping by using my current Mac Pro for music, mundane stuff etc. I can avoid some of the glitches that come with it.
