Hello,

I have asked this in my gig report already, but I figured it was probably the wrong place. After using VDMX on my MBP for 18 months now, I have come to a point where it seems that its power isn't enough anymore - I guess I need a beefier graphics card and maybe more processing power. Mac Pros are great machines but I don't think I can afford one at the moment. So I'm asking you whether anyone has made some experiences in trying to build a hackintosh and running VDMX on it.What hardware would you suggest (especially in terms of Graphics cards and processors).I was considering two possibilities: Either a shuttle system or a 19" rackmount case.Can anyone recommend something?

Please help

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

Thank you
I do architectural design and rendering... I also run a windows VM for a few programs that are not native OSX. I also game on this rig and do general administration tasks. Since upgrading to this system from a 2013 Mac pro "with Mid level upgrades" I hardly notice that the programs running in the VM are not native.

I checked out the specs for your software and the specs below are more then sufficient. I have the occasional crash only when using windows VM other wise the system is as stable as my Mac Pro, that also had the occasional crash while using windows VM.

Any standard guide will be suited to help you with this build.

My Hack is:
