Thank you that's good to know.
How do you find the sound quality of the Sound Blaster Omni?
My main usage If I got one would be for producing music with Ableton and monitoring via headphones, so sound quality would be the highest priority.
Also would you know if its capable of driving the Senheiser HD 600 headphones?
The sound quality is ok and by spec can drive 600 ohm headphones. I use the Omni for general web browsing and gaming. For music, I actually have an LH Labs Geekout V2+ DAC to an ALO Continental Dual Mono amp feeding JH Audio Layla in ear monitor. If you want really good audio for monitoring, there are many high end DACs and amps available that support USB. Check out headfi.org for a wealth of info. For producing music, I would highly recommend you look at Apogee line of professional audio components. Just about anything they make supports Macs.
It appears that everything is loading. However, the video card goes black when Sierra loads. Hav eyou seen this? I was looking around and seems that the r9-390x is not a good choice for this. How do you like your 980 ti?
The black screen issues sounds very much like the well known problem with nVidia cards and certain SMBIOS configurations. I don't know if AMD cards have the same issue, but you may get some tips from the nVidia thread:
The 980 Ti kicks butt! It's the highest performing card you can get at the moment for under $1K. That may be short lived if Sierra adds support for the new Pascal series, but there have been no official news on that.
