Will the GTX285 work with OSX86

10 April 2010 - 02:55 AM

I'm getting a new setup and my plan is to get a GA-EX58-UD5/Core i7 930/12G RAM. Along with it it want to get the GTX 285 1GB (Newegg# N82E16814143190)

I want to get this card because I do video editing with the upcoming Adobe CS5 it can use this card for acceleration that is just amazing for video editing. Will this be an ok card to pick for a OSX? I have read about some problems with the 2GB version of this card, but not much on the 1GB I’m not sure if that’s because it works or not.


Basicly am I safe with this card on OSX?

Thanks

PS: Any advice on the setup will be much appreahsated as well below are the parts I'm thinking about.

Want to buy the ABSOULTE best for my x86 Mac

09 April 2010 - 09:48 PM

Right now I have a core2 box with an Intel Badaxe 2 8G Ram and a Nivida Evga 8800, I have been very happy with it, everything works very well in Windows/Mac, but I want to upgrade.



I want to get the best supported core 7i motherboard I can, I’m thinking about the GA-EX58-UD5 it seems like everyone likes Gigabyte and there are some posts on how to get everything working. If I go with this will EVERYTHING work on the mobo? Is the best mobo to get hands down or is there something better or close, for the i7? I’m going to put in the i7-960, and 12GB or RAM. (See Newegg numbers below)

On the video card I want to get the GTX 285 1GB, because I do video editing with the upcoming Adobe CS5 it can use this card for acceleration that is just amazing for video editing. Will this be an ok card to pick for a OSX? I have read about some problems with the 2GB version of this card, but not much on the 1GB I’m not sure if that’s because it works or not.

Below is what I’m thinking on the parts LMK if you have changes that will make it work better with OSX. Thanks so much
