Hi all,

Have been a long time reader over the past few months and am coming close to pulling the trigger on my first Hackintosh.

Main purpose is to edit 4k footage in FCPX. From many posts on here I gathered that the ATI chips perform much better with FCPX than NVIDIA. I have my sights on a Sapphire R9 280X http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-Version-PCI-Express-Graphics-11221-00-20G/dp/B00FLMKNE0/ref=sr_1_2?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1447108813&sr=1-2&keywords=R9+280X

Question is, how will this card handle my 4k monitor? Dell P2715Q. What other card should I consider if the 280X is not the right one?

Thanks for the help,
