  • Hi,
    My system config is :-
    Processor: AMD Phenom™ II X6 1055T Processor (6 CPUs), ~2.8GHz
    MOBO Model: Gigabyte GA-880GM-UD2H
    Memory: 10GB RAM
    Card name: AMD Radeon HD 6850
    HDD: 500GB (virgin kept for Mac)

    Can I install 10.9 on the above rig??

    Please suggest. If not, what is the best I could get running. My focus is HD editing and composting. Need a smooth running FCP, adobe apps, autodesk smoke.

    Please suggest. Thanks.
