    I just unboxed a Titan X Pascal for my 2010 Mac Pro 12-Core, I have not installed the card yet because I'm waiting on two more parts a mini 6-pin to 8-pin and mini 6-pin to 6-pin power cables and the only place i know that carries them is Moddiy and there base out in Hong Kong but if you guys know any stores that sales these types of power cables in the US can you guys let me know because Moddiy takes forever to ship, but anyways here is a link to my unboxing and make sure to check out part 2 when i get the power cables in, I just wanted to let you guys know this card does not work in OS X yet just windows for now, I got a great deal on the Titan X P retail price is $1296 with tax and I got it for $990 off of Offerup.



    by the way I am selling my 1080GTX link to my eBay (US only) (UPDATE SOLD THE 1080GTX)

    You can order the cables from macvidcards.com, they're in Hollywood.

    You should wait till the black Friday holidays to buy monitors since right now alot of monitors dont have 4k displays and by the end of the year you'll probably only find 4k on the market. This means alot of big discounts on those non-4k monitors. 4k tvs have come down alot in price this year, monitors should do the same.

    Also the titan x is a very powerful card, its probably going to loose performance on a mac pro since without a firmware modification on the graphics card your only running at pci-e 1.1. Let us know how it worksout, but building a windows PC for that extra 3-5% might be worth it espcailly when gaming in 4k.

    Sure I will do a follow up video as soon as I get my power cables, Yea I know but i'm not interested in a PC resale value is just to horrible, maybe when my Mac Pro dies and not worth fixing then maybe but I do understand what your saying
