Video Card for Boot 132 Vanilla Install
I am buying my hardware to make the installation of OS X from a OEM copy of 10.5 as seamless and as easy as possible. To that end I have acquired a Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L MB, an E8400 Core 2 Duo, 8GB of Patriot RAM, and a VelociRaptor 300GB drive. Now I need a video card.
I have been looking at the GeForce 8800GT and was wondering if this was the best way to go. I want to make sure I get a card that works with the vanilla install, and can still support an HP LP2475w 24in IPS monitor. I need the video card mainly for photo editing and for designing software, so it does not need to be a xxxx fps speed demon to support the latest games. However, I would like to to be as performant as possible in case I do ever load a game on this machine.
So, what video card would best match this wish list?
Two other side questions. Is there a way to add bluetooth support to this configuration for use with a keyboard and mouse? And, do I need to pay attention to the optical drive for compatibility with this setup, or will pretty much anything work?
Everything will work, for the bluetooth check the HCL and compare prices, about the optical any should work, sata @.@... good luck, theres guides for this mobo google it
