Guys, first - thank you so much for all your advice in this forum. I've had a few long nights going through the interesting builds that you guys have submitted, and I've now decided that I'd like to give it a go myself. Purpose of this machine is mostly for FCPX/PP work and I am looking for one lean mean rendering machine. Ongoing stability is absolutely key - it would be so very painful if this box ended up freezing and being a daily nuisance. I've been through this blogpost, and it is very helpful: http://nofilmschool.com/build-a-hackintosh/ - but I wanted to make sure that the PRO machine here had all the latest and greatest, and if you guys had any recommended changes to it: Ideally I'd keep spend under $3000. Thanks!
