Got USD$1050 for the CPU? i7 5960x is the only 8 core - 5930K is about $600 and the 5820K is around $400 At this point no one knows yet what works. Parts ordered haven't had time to arrive yet for first adopters unless they found a seller to drop ship overnight.

Have you checked nVidia site for Mac drivers for your GPU?

You have 2 problems - CPU is SB, board is IB. This can be made to work, but your SB CPU graphics is HD2000, which has never been supported. In order to install you need a Snow Leopard supported GPU. Then you need to upgrade to Lion 10.7.5 or later OS X version to get support for the IB board PCH chip. Then you will probably want to get a better...
