Hello there,


first I want to thank the community. Without you my project would not have been successful!

Here are the specs with which i installed osx 10.4.11:

- Gigabyte GA-35-DS3P

- Intel 6850 2x3Ghz

- 4GB ram (4x 1GB kingston PC667)

- XFX Geforce 7900GT

- Seagate Barracuda ST3400 (400 GB SATA-HD)

- Pioneer DVR-115D DVD RW (IDE?!)

- D-Link DWL-G122 USB WLAN

- Hercules FW16/12 Audiointerface

- Samsung 24" Widescreen FullHD (first DVI)

- Samsung 19" 1280x1024 (second DVI)



- xXx 10.4.11


- natid dual 0.2


- ALC889a


It works great! I tested it with Adobe CS3 with multiple layers in 5x5 meters with 300dpi and some filter. absolutly great!

48 tracks in apple logic with 4 effects or dynamics per track. (something about 50% cpu average).

I am absolutly happy with this machine.


... but :(

There left two problems.

First one is that sometimes I'm watching a DVD or trying to rip a dvd the system frozes and i have to shut down the computer. Anyone knows this problem?

The second one is that the "get info" for a volume, folder or file is not working. If I try the finder restarts.


So again: Thanks to the community. Maybe someone of you can help me to fix the last two issues :(
