Wonderful and really quite nice to see the lga 2011 socket included. Am just wondering if that is the only wifi card that is available for a hackintosh. Are there anyothers? If not is it possible to just buy any wifi bridge and expect it to work.

An office mate of mine said like 'if you got some more bucks to make your build future proof you can go to 760 also, may be MSI Hawk' here ...

I am having issues with connectivity with the Rosewill wireless card. I have searched high and low for a solution with no luck. Internet disconnects frequently, although computer stays connected with network. I have to turn off, then on WiFi to get it working again. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi
If i am correct you are trying to use Rosewill wireless card as WiFi Card and want to connect to WiFi router, which in turn serves internet connection. If that is the case, I am not sure about "Rosewill wireless card" but I use DWA 556 by Dlink and use that in the same way. 556 is awesome never giving me an issue from 10.6~10.9. It worked OOB.
Did you check HCL to see has anybody got a success on it?
Not sure whether this helps :silent:
Best of luck :thumbup:

is there any GTX 780 / GTX 780 TI that is NOT GK110B-based ?

- - - Updated - - -

or should I ask, whats the most powerful GPU from nvidia thats fully compatible at the moment? would it be GTX 770 or something else?

It would be useful to know when GK110B chipset was released. We can find some early GTX Titan card manufactured in mars, april or may 2013. They're probably GK110A based, but it's not sure.

There is no support in Snow Leopard for Ivy Bridge or haswell hardware. Apple released Mountain Lion to support Ivy Bridge and this year we got Mavericks to support Haswell. The new operating systems are backwards compatible for older hardware.
Snow Leopard can be used with a version of iBoot as a temporary measure long enough to download Mavericks from the App Store.

If you wish to use the Asus motherboard with Mavericks then you should read this: http://www.tonymacx86.com/401-install-bootloader-extra-efi-partition.html
