Hello, all.

Talking my friend out of buying an iMac for video editing, and I want to know what the best Graphics Card to use with Final Cut Pro X. I'll be going with a Haswell i7, and I would like a mid range graphics card with the best compatibility with FCPX.
Thanks for the help.

I think that your question was answered very well here : http://www.tonymacx86.com/video/95146-build-fcp-x-10-0-6-os-x-10-8-3-urgent.html#post590118

You will find more information over in the video section of the forum : http://www.tonymacx86.com/video/
Haswell hardware is not supported officially yet by OS X, it should be in a matter of 7-10 days however. http://www.tonymacx86.com/358-early-adopter-s-guide-intel-s-haswell-cpus-8-series-motherboards.html
