Hello fellas

I'm looking to finally put in a new graphics card into my gaming PC and this one has been on my mind for some time now. And with black Friday coming around, its been given a nice little discount of 10-20 bucks, giving me a perfect excuse to spend some money on a fancy new toy :D
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127745

I've been using an i7 3770 on a Asus maximus V gene board, and by using the fantastic guides on this website, I got a fully functional 10.8.5 mountain lion hackintosh installation running perfectly... Or as close to as I can get. The very few minor things that's been buggy is the Intel HD 4000 graphics minor (almost not even noticeable) graphical bugs here and there. And because I did a DSDT-free installation, HDMI audio does not work (which I don't really use anyway).

So to get down to the real question, will this new card work with my hackintosh installation? Will the right drivers be included in the latest multibeast? Are there limits to GPU features? Are their any bugs? Will I continue to see small glitches/graphical artifacts after using this card? Will HDMI audio work on DSDT-free installations?

The 760 series has been out for a little while now and I would think they had made some working drivers for them. I saw mixed forum posts of people having troubles with them and people saying they are compatible so I thought i'd make a more recent post and make sure my facts are straight before dropping money on fast expensive card.

PS: Gigabyte vs MSI on this card? The windforce 3x seems to make sense for overclocking purposes but the Twin Frozr I've been told has an equivalent potential + less fans = less noise. Thoughts?

I was looking at this card as well... not sure if compatible like the other msi gtx 760 that is listed on the november buyers guide. Was hoping they were just as compatible but with different fans... anyone know? thnx

Ty for the reply. It kind of drives me crazy because I know for a fact that people w/ hackintoshed systems more than likely have this version of the card but won't take the time to answer. As I did more research I found that the HAWK edition of the gtx 760 is the one to go for. I'm still unsure about its compatibility with OS X. But its supposed to be the quietest, and fastest of the gtx 760 series and only for an extra 10 bucks or so if your looking in the right places.

I just installed this one: MSI GTX 760 Twin Frozr Gaming 2GB, so far works very well
tried FCP X with some heavy effects and had no problem dealing with it, also ultra quiet
and cold, my former gtx 650 Ti from evga was really loud, I cant complain about performance tough.

recommended!
