Hi all,

Building a hackintosh to run premiere pro and resolve (video editing applications).

I'm sitting with a room full of boxes and just built my hackintosh up. It's got a 980ti, however I read on the latest driver post that the sierra drivers are the only ones that allow for full use of the card. Is this accurate, would these work with el capitan?

Would it be worth it to start with a sierra install or is el capitan likely to give me less trouble?

Thanks for your time. Been going back and forth on this for a while.

Install El Capitan. If you want to experiment with early beta software, then remember that other applications may not be up to speed for another few months. Driver maturity is good and El Capitan is stable.

Thank you very much, I went that route.

I was confused by the message on the driver page, but it looks like I've gotten full functionality out of the 980ti with el capitan and the nvidia drivers.
