Hi there,

After a lot of research, I have found a guy in the UK, who builds Hackintoshs and is confident with them. I was feeling nervous about buying all the bits, putting it together and having a nightmare when it comes to the software side, plus with a 20 month old and a 3 week old, time is against me!

I will use this Hackintosh mainly for music production (logic pro 9, Ableton, Maschine, Waves plugins, DP7) and he reckons that this build will work fine with all these programs. It seems like a good price and the sale of my old imac will fund a big chunk, plus I will have enough space and ability to upgrade hard drives and RAM when I need to.

Here is the spec:

Intel Core I5Quad Core 3570K 199.99
Gigabyte Motherboards GA-Z77-DS3H (For I5 Only) 74.99
Corsair RAM 16GB 79.99
Mid Tower Mac Cases Black 19.99
Seagate HardDisk 1TB Eco 64.99
Powercool Power Supply 650W 44.99
TP Link Wireless Card 4800 - 3 Antenies 29.99
Sony Optical Drive Optiarc 19.99
Bluetooth Receiver Belkin Bluetooth Dongle 9.99
Firewire card 44.99

Am I missing anything?

Seems like a pretty good deal to me, obvs I could have upped the spec even more, but I need a new laptop which will be a MBP and that is going to cost a chunk.

Any opinions welcome.

Cheers x
