I would use a Pioneer BDR209 instead of that Asus. I've never had any luck with Asus ODDs.

Depends on what kexts you added for the old board to work and if they cause a kp on the new board. Do you know what you added? Have you patched AppleHDA? Is the new board audio codec same as the old board? Same question for the NIC and networking. Suggest a clean install and use Migration Assistant to move files from the old backup.

Suggest a separate HDD for OS X. For OS X to install, you must have GPT+ formatted HDD/SSD, which means you have to re-install Win7 and Fedora. You could create a partition on your drive and clone a SL install to it, but the GPT+ drive would still be needed for the original install, so why bother? Especially since updates won't work on OS X...

According to nVidia the GTX770 mac res is 4096x2160. The LG, according to the spec sheet is 3440x1440. Can't see any reason it won't work unless OS X native drivers won't handle it. Try it and let us know.

1 The board itself has video ports, but does not actually have gfx capability. The CPU is what actually has the GPU onboard.

If you get a DP to mDP...

Depends on the size of your HDD. If you are using Chimera and a HDD over 1 TB you will have to create at least 2 partitions - 1 less than 1 TB for boot/OS X partition, tho other the rest of the drive. Please follow the rules and put your hardware in your profile and/or create a sig. You can use mine as a go-by.
