The DC7700 and DC7800 certainly have their issues, but the DC7900 is reasonably clean, except for LAN and audio.
My DC7900 CMT runs Mountain Lion flawlessly using the Intel kext for LAN and an nVidia 8400GS for video and Voodoo for audio.
One of mine was originally a DC7800 but was converted to a DC7900 by a mobo swap ($40, delivered, on eBay, using B-I-N). An E6850 proc.
The other DC7900 CMT was built for (presumably) Microsoft, but was surplussed by them as brand-new, but unused systems. An E8400 proc.
The brand-new DC7900 CMT was my main system for nearly a year.
Alas, the LAN is sort of non-standard. The Audio definitely is non-standard.
My subsequent systems have been 7-Series, with the proviso that the LAN HAS to be R8111, and the codec HAS to be ALC892 or ALC897. My own custom DSDT to allow any type of USB device to be inserted in any USB receptacle, adapted from Mieze's code.
Too many Hacks, too little time.
