Hey Guys! I am looking to build a brand new system this summer and I am looking to start buying parts soon as too not put to big of a hole in my pocket all at once! Hehe.
I have sold all of my previous systems (6 or 7 of them) that had OS X and I am stuck on a cheap laptop with Windows 7 (Yuck) and desperately need a system for work at home. I do 3D Modeling in Cinema 4D, Editing in Premiere Pro and graphics in After Effects and use a 12 Core Mac Pro at work but need a system at home.
You can see the Specs for the system in my Signature.
The Biggest Problem I am having is choosing a Graphics Card. I have looked at about 50 of them and always changed my mind.
I am now looking at the EVGA 02G-P3-1387-KR GeForce GTX 460. This thing is a beast, it has 2GB of Vram and CUDA support for the Mercury Playback Engine in Premiere.
The only problem that I foresee with the card is that it has TWO nvidia GTX 460 CPUs on the one chip.
"Equipped with 672 (336 x 2) CUDA cores clocked at 700MHz" "Features: 2 GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) GPUs"
Has anyone had any luck, or do they know if these dual GPU cards work with OS X?
