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.
