Status: Build Complete!
This build will replace my 2010 Mac Pro which I currently use for gaming and Lightroom RAW photo editing. My Mac Pro is still a great machine, but it makes little sense for me to continue using OS X as my primary OS when I spend a large amount of time gaming in Windows (Bootcamp). Constantly rebooting to a different OS depending on what I need to do is a huge hassle so I'm looking to move everything over to Windows.
Mac gaming has come a long way since I started using Macs but it still has a long way to go, and I seriously doubt we will ever see the day that OS X becomes a relevant gaming platform given Apple's direction with the newly announced Mac Pro and continual focus on mobile devices and notebooks.
