    Default Anyone with a Sandy Bridge build yet?

    Anyone built a Sandy Bridge Hackintosh yet? I'm in the market to upgrade my aging computer (Phenom 9500 - not Hackintoshed) and it seems that the best bang-for-the-buck CPU-wise, is the new i5 2500 SB. Whatever configuration I decide on, it needs to be a fairly simple setup procedure, meaning LAN, Sound, USB, PCIe, and SATA working out of the box. My disc drive is currently IDE, but I'm fairly sure that it's SATA compatible if necessary. Any recommendations? I think that either way, I'm going to go with the SB, since, for around $200, all I can get is a 2.8 Q Lynnfield, and I can get a 3.3 Q SB for $5 more. Any MoBo suggestions? OSX will not be my main OS, although I would like to use it often, but who knows, if it's stable enough, it might just become my main OS. I'll be running a Radeon 5770, and according to my research, that shouldn't be too big of a problem. Any suggestions are highly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    this guy said he got it too work tonymacx86 Forum • View topic - p67a-ud3 10.6 install

    i got the hd 6870 which is not supported by osx yet , i might have gotten the 5770 if i had known it was.

    make sure you wait till the start shipping the boards with the fixed SATA chip . If you havent heard they shipped semi defective boards.
