  1. So being an iOS developer building a machine that runs anything other then OSX would be a waste for me. It's come time for a new machine and since I make all my income off of my computer I am willing to put a bit extra into it. I have decided on a 1-2 thousand USD buget and after a bit of research have come up with the following build. Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I73770K GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9Q-32GXM XFX HD-687A-ZHFC Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card Antec NEO ECO 520C 520W Continuous Power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply Crucial M4 CT256M4SSD2 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Corsair Obsidian Series 650D (CC650DW-1) Black Steel structure with black brushed aluminum faceplate ATX Mid Tower Computer Case CORSAIR H100 (CWCH100) Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with the above parts as far as how the work together and if they had an positive/negative feedback or even suggestions on how the improve the above build. This computer will be used solely with OSX so I would like to avoid having to use any nasty hacks inorder to get it working.

  6. My computer build~ is it compadible

    The problem with going intel that this is a prepackage that i can get a real good deal on. So im not sure if it will allow me to go intel. Does anyone know of a intel processor that is compatible with that Mobo?

  8. New Processor Mobo and Video card

    Just curious what is the likelihood that those parts will also be compatible with Snow leopard when its released
  9. New Processor Mobo and Video card

    Thank you both i actually got my processor and mobo price ranges mixed up... must not have been paying attention when i posted it lol but maasey racer im seriously going to be looking in to those components thank you for you time .
  10. Well its that time that i upgrade my computer now i am more then set with hard drive space optical drives and ram. I am just looking for recommendations on a new motherboard (preferably one with a pci express slot) a new video card (preferably one that would fit in that pci express slot) and a new processor (make sure its compatible with your Mobo selection) As for priceing just keep it within reason i mean oviously im not going to spend 1k on a processor but here are just ball park estaments. Motherboard less then 150 Processor less then 200 Video card less then 100
