    Default Building the ultimate Hac

    Hi, I'm looking to get into the whole hackintosh scene at the moment so I'm just looking for some advice.

    I want to buy a pc that i will install a version of mac osx on (preferably leopard) and i was wondering what spec i should be looking at to get full or almost full compatibility. Is there any makes at the moment that meet this spec (something from dell...)


    Thanks

    Try something like this

    or if you want a prebuild one, buy a HP Pavilion Elite, there even reburbished ones on ebay ;D

    They have full compatibility, just WINTV wont work on Leopard, but works great on Vista, if you wanna watch TV on your computer

    I wouldn't mind building either of these two configurations that icchansan provided. Are there any places online that can sell the complete configuration, meaning, where I can just click and choose the items below and buy everything in a couple of swift clicks? Tigerd****t seems to not have the Gigabyte model below, nor the Intel version with the Intel CPU mentioned (as a combo pack).

    EDIT: and also, is there an OOB WiFI card that can be installed that would work with either configs below?

    I'd checkout newegg.com. They've usually got much better prices than anywhere else, and no one beates they're shipping.

    I am in the same dilemma. I also want to build the ultimate hac. The motherboards you guys listed all use ddr2 ram... I am thinking of getting a board that uses the intel x48 chipset with ddr3 1600. Does anyone have any suggestions? Will I have a problem with drivers?

    Thank you in advance.

    I dont think theres a problem with memory, you can always try other motherboard:

    Intel BOXD5400XS Extreme Series
    Intel BOXDX38BT Extreme Series

    Gigabyte GA-X48T-DQ6

    Asus P5E3 Deluxe

    These motherboard have DDR3 Support and they will work
