Hi there

I built a perfect running hackintosh PC last year so that I could edit videos using Final Cut Pro X (im not a professional editor, and I love this software as its so easy to figure out)

At the time I had an ATI HD6670 Card which worked natively and ploughed through FCPX like butter

As I use Windows more for Music Making / Gaming I upgraded to a Gainward GTX 580 1.5gb and upgraded to Lion 10.7.4 so I could still run FCPX. However after installing the drivers and OpenCL injectors, I am finding performance in FCPX painfully slow, even though the card is a much higher spec?

I've tried googling this and don't seem to be finding any clear cut results, am I doing something wrong? At this rate im going to have to actively swap in the ATI everytime I want to edit videos, and swap back to the GTX for gaming in windows, which is just painful

Any help would be much appreciated :)

10.8.2 Brings Complete Native Support for NVIDIA GF100, GF110 and GK104

GF110
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores
GeForce GTX 570
GeForce GTX 580

If all else fail, I would just upgrade to 10.8.2 and do a clean install.
