Almondo99 replied to netkas's topic in Graphics CardsAnyone?
Almondo99 replied to netkas's topic in Graphics CardsSo does this mean I could run a GTX 460 on the Windows side, and a 9800 GT on the Mac side? And use the 9800 GT as a PhysX card or dual GPU on the Windows side? Has anyone tried this?
This is my first PC build, switching over from Mac due to the ridiculous pricing of Mac hardware. However, I still need the apple OSX because I prefer it for video editing, which is where this becomes more complex. I will be running Windows 7, which I already have a copy of, and will use it mostly for gaming. I've picked some parts, but am still confused on others, here are the ones I've picked- Overall Budget: $750-ish I have a monitor, Resolution 1440x900 Processor: i3 530/540 or i5 750/760 if i can get a good deal on the i5. Graphics Card: EVGA GTX 460 768mb or 1GB Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Computer Case HDD: Hitachi 1TB Not sure on power supply (how much I need) or RAM, MOBO, etc. The biggest problem is the GTX 460 is incompatible with Hackintosh, so I was wondering if there was a way to have two graphics cards, The GTX 460 and another cheap card, that will be good enough for video editing and be compatible with Hackintosh, so I can switch between the two? If I can't, i'll probably go with the GTX 260. Again I'm completely new to building, any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.
