    Help to build Music production station

    Excellent feedback. Yeah I wouldn't want to spend a couple hundred minimum just to be able to dual boot monitors. At least I know now that I can save a couple hundo and maybe later if I decide to ditch the PS4 get a dedicated GPU.

    Help to build Music production station

    I thought the same when it came to a music production build and a GPU however, some researching has proven me wrong. Supposedly a GPU is recommended as DAW'S can be demanding on graphics believe it or not and takes some stress off of the CPU. Still not 100% though. I'd love to save a couple...

    WWY Build for a Logic Pro X Hack for under $1K ?

    Oh ok. My apologies. Yes I'm going i7. I've been on the fence about Skylake actually but I don't have the time nor do I want the headaches. I actually have a pretty decent draft of what I'm going with. Not 100% on the mobo or GPU, and I have yet to choose between air cooled or liquid...

    WWY Build for a Logic Pro X Hack for under $1K ?

    Yeah I kind of figured as much. Well I've been searching and pricing all day and have found a pretty nice setup with that same board for $170. I'll post when I get home as I'm currently walking in freezing cold weather (Massachusetts.)

    WWY Build for a Logic Pro X Hack for under $1K ?

    Forgive me for my ignorance but the Asus TUF Gryphon Z97 doesn't seem to be $320, it actually is significantly less if you can find it. Im seeing around $170 USD. It seems that a lot of boards are out of stock. Is this because they are older and harder to find or obsolete? I'm a bit confused.

    WWY Build for a Logic Pro X Hack for under $1K ?

    Well I'm not sure that a 6% performance increase and higher price for a chip is totally worth it at that point in the game. Especially since Skylake is not yet stable with OS X. What I'd be paying for at this point is potential head aches and to be among the elite (not really) to be using...

    WWY Build for a Logic Pro X Hack for under $1K ?

    Makes more sense now. I thought the actual chipset from GB boards were identical or closer to Mac and it had to do with hardware and not software. Yes I was poking around these forums last year and there was no mention of Clover. I was happy to come on here again and see some forward movement in...

    WWY Build for a Logic Pro X Hack for under $1K ?

    Thank you for the recommendation and highly appreciate your input. I've been watching some popular YouTube videos on hackintoshes and a lot of people are RECOMMENDING Gigabyte boards, but using Asus. Is there a reason for this? I want compatibility and reliability. This board looks like it...

    WWY Build for a Logic Pro X Hack for under $1K ?

    Been out of the PC building game since 2003 and needless to say, a lot has changed. I'm wanting to build a hack that will run Logic Pro X smoothly while keeping the odds of issues low. I'm trying to build on a budget of $1k. I mostly need advice on a great MB, but would like to see what you...

    Buyer's Guide Compatibility Question

    Forgive me for my ignorance. I used to build PC's but haven't since 2003. I definitely haven't built a Hackintosh before. I was in the market for a late 2012 MacMini i7 Quad-Core, but I now see the light and for the price I would pay for that, I will have a much faster machine. Of course, I have...

    Buyer's Guide Compatibility Question

    I realize that you need to follow the guidelines in the Buyer's Guide in order to build a proven Hackintosh. The question I had is, while following the general template laid out for example, a mATX build; Do I HAVE to use that recommended case, mobo, processor, RAM, etc?? Or when I click on...
