    • Custom Mac Desktop BuildsOne of the most important components in a custom build is the graphics card. If youre building a CustoMac, itsan especially tricky decision. Not only do you have to worry about what will be a good performer for the cost, but you also have to be informed what is fully supported, and what is not. They may not be the most powerful ornewest cards available, however they are undoubtedly smart and safe options. Please note that older cards may not be available, and that standard layout, or "reference design" cards are most compatible.
