    Post AMD Based Hackintosh Help!!!

    Going to be building a new pc, using

    8GB OCZ 1033Mhz DDR3 Ram, SO Mobo Needs DDR3 Support

    Decided against AMD as it is too much hassle.
    Will the below spec work as a hackintosh??

    1x Intel Core i5-2400 3.10GHz (Sandybridge) Socket LGA1155 Processor - Retail
    1x NZXT Phantom Enthusiast Full Tower Case - White
    1x MSI P67A-C45 Intel P67 (Socket 1155) DDR3 Motherboard - (Sandybridge)
    1x Seagate Barracuda Green 2TB SATA 6Gb/s Hard Drive (ST2000DL003)
    1x XFX ATI Radeon HD 5450 1024MB DDR2 PCI-Express Graphics Card
    1x Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB SATA-II 32MB Cache - OEM 1yr Warranty
    2x OCZ Intel Extreme XMP 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 10666C7 1333MHz Low Voltage Dual-Channel Kit (OCZ3X1333LV4GK)

    Don't Know What Fan/Heatsink Upgrade To Get Yet, But Wont Be Overclocking For A While

    You better go with Gigabyte or Asus for your mobo, if you want MSI read the HCL
    HP Pavilion Elite m9250f
    Snow Leopard 10.6.6, Asus IPIBL-LB MOD BIOS, Intel Quad Core Q6600, 4GB RAM (800mhz), 2x500GB, nVidia 8600GT (Works), ALC888S (Works), Wireless RT73 (Works), LAN (Works) - How to Install - Blog - Hardware Combos - FAQ by TJ2K7

    checked HCL, and this is on the supported list

    MSI 890FXA-GD70 AM3 Socket

    does that mean that AM3 CPU's are supported???
    if so would either of the below CPU's Work Well with Hackintosh as they are not on the HCL supported list but that is because they are AMD not Intel.

    AMD CPU AM3 Phenom II x4 965 or AMD CPU Phenom II X6 1055T AM3 CPU 9MB AM3 2.8GHz/3.3GHz Turbo Core

    HCL 10.6.6 also says about the mobo

    "64bit kernel boots with -force64 arch=i386, although I still got the odd KP and app crash that seems to be solved by removing -force64"

    does that mean getting 8GB DDR3 Ram is pointless as it will not recognise/use any after 3.somethingGB???

    cheers
