1. The O/S has to support it. For example, Windows 7 only supports 10 bit without the Aero user interface.

2. The display card and display driver have to support it. For example, AMD Firepro display card and driver.

MacosX has NO support for 10bit, so your only option is Windows 7/8 with activated Aero Peek.

BTW, buying a Mac won't solve all your problems in life.

Nvidia Quadra Graphic Cards has support for 10 bit, actually I use it, you can find a non very expensive option here

Nec displays are among best out there, but there are some cheaper and very useful solutions with Dell

10 bit/color gamut will set your eyes closer to the actual gamut of your raw files, closer to the high end inkjet printers.
