    nVidia GTX 960 4GB compatible?

    Solidworks plays better with FirePro and Quadro graphics cards from my experience. Either way you'll want to dual boot that system I wouldn't use parallels for that. Start with the 960 to save money and consider having a separate windows system down the line with a professional graphics card.

    First Build :D

    I recommend a 4790k since you are getting the 980ti. The the C broadwell CPUs are clocked lower and only benefit from a better integrated graphics processor inside something you don't need. The higher clock of the 4790k will be better for Final Cut Pro.

    GTX 970 or R9 390

    EVGA and Sapphire are the most dependable brands in general for GPU's. I would take a look at the buyers guide next time, there's always a link on the home page, go with nVidia also they list EVGA in the buyers guide. If you want to use other parts not on the buyers guide I highly recommend you...

    Haswell Snow Leopard

    Yup everyone was fine. It was a rough time, a lot of family issues. My uncle started the fire, just a lot of drama. No one got hurt though. If the new Mac Pro uses Ivy Bridge E or any version of LGA 2011 chips I may even go that route. I'm also hoping a ivy bridge e or haswell board by gigabyte...

    Haswell Snow Leopard

    Mavericks will be out by the time my build is complete so that's most likely the OS I'll update to. I'll be going with the z87x-ud3h and an i7 4770k. Hopefully internal GPU is fine with audio recording and editing, I expect it to be fine I don't run anything to intense.

    Haswell Snow Leopard

    Is it possible to get 10.6.8 installed onto a Haswell build to access the App Store? If not will it ever be?

    [SUCCESS] GA-Z68X-UD4 + i7-2600k + XFX6870 Dual Fan

    great thread, I am going to buy an additional 1TB HDD to install ML on. I use Snow for recording, once i get Mountain Lion working 100% to my liking, I will use the Snow drive as a 2nd drive.
