I mainly built this machine for music production/light gaming. Everything works flawlessly, besides getting some of the parts, I had to pick up some from FEDex shipping center before they closed, a fun race of time. I currently have OSX yosemite, and windows 7 dual booting, tweaking the mobo was easy enough for OSX to install. Finding compatible kexts were more work than anything. In the end, everything is working quite well. And most importantly I stayed in budget.
