Thanks peeps and great to see lots of GA790FXTA-UD5 board members in one place!!! Kewl


System Running Gigabyte GA-790FXTA-UD5 Bios F3i AMD Phenom II x4 965 @ 3.8GHZ (3.2 venila) 4GB DDR3 1066 Ram
2x NVidia 8800 768MB GFX Cards
3x Acer X223W Monitors running at 1600x1200

I love this board - If only i could get MAC OSX working on it (not in VM)

Look forward to some info and thanks in advance for the help.

Hmm, interesting. I have retail SL I might give it a go and see what happens, I also have a other version that I know works I'll try aswell.

But (there is always a but, isn't there?) I fear that OSX may not be compatible with this board.

I would appreciate if you could try flux. it would be awesome to have a dual boot system with this board.

BTW - nice setup, It would not fit into my system with all the piping, too many hard drives and cabling in my system i am afraid.

I have the main system and documents on 2 ultra 320 15000rpm scsi drives and 1 pata dvdrw then the other 7 drives are on sata - loads of wiring. (too much) i need to consolidate the data to bigger drives. :-)

A few nice SATA 6Gb drives would be sweet and take advantage of the SATA 6Gb connections.
