First of all I do not want to start a argument about which is better the real thing or you you make yourself. I am trying to pick hardware for a mac box and I want to make sure the hardware will be compatible before I drop a bunch of cash.
HIS Radeon HD 6970 2GB
Intel Core™ i7-960
OCZ Agility 3 Series SATA III Solid State Drive
Patriot Extreme Performance Viper II Sector 7 Series DDR3 6GB
Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard
From the research i have done, the video card sounds like the hardest part in getting a system like this to work. But i read that with the 'Mac OS X v10.6.7 Update for early 2011 MacBook Pro' it gave native support for the AMD Radeon HD 6970 Device ID 0x6718. Does this mean that as long as that patch is installed it will work properly. Or will there be other complications?
