After Apple dropped support for Nvidia hardware lots of people thought this was the beginning of the end for the Mac as a serious option for 3D pros. At this time we know better but like many people at that time I bought a custom build Windows PC.
Switching wasn't easy for me specially because I kept using a Mac. Luckily I got a lot of support from the 3D artists community and discovered there are a lot of options to customise Windows to your liking.
Use the link below to see my extensive list of Windows add-ons. I even discovered some new tools that I am now using on the Mac as well. Feel free to leave a note if you better tips.
