    Default Want to make the leap - need help

    hello everyone! Have read a lot about the hackintosh experience and would love to give it a whirl. I do have several concerns, however. My system specs are as follows:

    Base System: AMD Athlon 64 3200+ on nForce 4 Mobo
    2 GB RAM
    ATI Radeon X1950Pro 256
    Creative Labs Audigy sound card (but can switch to on-board AC97 audio if needed)


    I have the following concerns:
    1) Is there a build in particular I should look for with the above specifications? New to this and not really familiar with the differences in the multitude of builds out there

    2) I have read that many have had issues with the X1950 Pro, is there a reference I can use to getting this card patched up correctly?

    3) I would love to use wine to play LotRO on my box, is this possible?

    I tried running ubuntu Linux on my system, but the Linux drivers for the x1950 Pro are worthless due to limited support from ATI. Is this the case with Tiger / Leopard?

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    Well, I am new to this site too having just registered and after lurking for awhile. Though my knowledge is quite limited, after doing research on my hardware, I do know that we share the same processor, and with ONLY that in mind, I understand that JaS 10.4.8 AMD/Intel SSE2-SSE3 is supposed to be a safe bet for you.
