    Default What's The Best Distro for Custom PC specs included


    First off I would like to say that I am quite a noob when it comes to the hackintosh scene. I built this computer specifically for this purpose several months back and I got the kalyway 10.5.2 distro and xp setup to dual boot but want to do a fresh restore. The reason being I have found it impossible to get my mini dv camcorder to be recognized in osx, and getting the sound to work properly in xp has been impossible. I have spent hours on asus forums and the insanely mac forum and have not been able to get either accomplished. At this point I want to do a fresh install of just OSX. I do not plan to dual boot this time. I just want to know what distro would work good with my setup and give me the use of firewire.

    Here are the specs:

    Motherboard: ASUS P5W DH DELUXE/WIFI-AP LGA 775 Intel 975X ATX

    Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E4500 Allendale 2.2GHz 2M shared L2 Cache LGA 775 65W

    Video Card: PNY VCG7300GXPB GeForce 7300GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16

    Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3500630AS 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s

    DVD Drive: SAMSUNG 20X DVD±R SATA Model SH-S203B -

    Memory: 4 X CORSAIR XMS2 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)

    Edit: WIFI Functionality would be good too but is not a must.

    Thanks in advance to all who help out this noob.
