Yeah good luck - I recently attempted to build a Hackintosh since I was upgrading one of my Win7 workstations anyway - what a disaster - I've built dozena of workstations over the years so am pretty comfy with hardward, installs etc. and followed all the knowns steps to the T with only Hackintosh "approved" parts and still couldn't get it working properly - finally gave up and tried to enjoy what was left of the 3 day 4th weekend. :(

What I don't get about all your switchers and new Apple haters is why you don't put your money where your mouth is? If you're really gonna switch to PPro why not SWITCH! Win7 64bit is clean, stabile and FAST and runs the Adobe stuff way faster than Mac! Plus you can pick up a CUDA qualified video card for half what you'd pay on the Apple store. I just bought a GTX570 and can run PPro 5.5 at full res on 1080p footage with multiple effects applied.

I guess I'm different than most out there - I just see everything as tools to use and not a Mac vs. PC thing. I've used FCP since version 1, yet cut my last feature film on Sony Vegas 10 because it was the 1st 64bit NLE that worked and the only NLE that allowed a pro 5.1 mix while I was editing!! Now planning on cutting my next trailer on FCPX just to try it out and hoping to do it on a new 27" iMac.

Fun times....
