Hey guys just got back to working on my Hackintosh setup, currently I have an HP A6620f running Leopard 10.5.7. The integrated intel graphics don't allow any resolutions above VGA so I've been looking for a video card off of the HCL.

Quick questions:
  • Are QE/CI supported and HW Acceleration the same? A lot of the wording on the HCL is confusing, some things say full functioning, while others say the same + HW acceleration.


  • Do the different brands matter? For example the MSI 8600 GTS 256 MB has QE/CL Supported/All Resoutions/Outstanding performance and price but if I got a EVGA 8600 GTS 256 MB (hypothetically) would that work the same?
