My hackintosh configurations are Intel530SSD240G, GA-Z77-DS3H, Xeon 1230v2, 16G memory and Asus GT640 graphics card. It is always used for FCPX and Photpshop CS6. The OSX Mountain Lion are fine in my system.
Recently, I upgrade the OS to Mavericks. I find the FCPX become a little bit slow, the temperature GT640 is higher about 10℃ than Mountain Lion. So I guess the CUDA/opencl/graphics works more, is that correct?

If I can upgrade the graphics card to improve the FCPX performance? Is the GTX760 fine with FCPX and Mavericks? Welcome any other graphics card advice.

Thank you very much!

I would go with the Gigabyte 760 OC or the 770 OC if you can afford it.
