i7 system build proposal

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm just about ready to buy this system. I have checked that all these parts are compatible for OS X 10.5.5. I just need to make sure of course so here I am asking you guys for any feedback you might have.


I'm mainly interested to hear if this particular video card will work. It comes with HDMI output which I think would be nice to have even if it turns out to only work under Windows.


I'm not a gamer but I do HD video editing and graphic design. I will also be backing up our Blu-Ray library to AVCHD DVDs. I want my system to feel snappy.


Please take a look and let me know if I should make any corrections.
