    Default Film Student Needs Help With Build

    Hey guys I am a film student that has been using macs for the past 7 years. I recently got a new HD camera for school and my macbook just can't handle it. It takes 2 hours to compress a 1 minute movie. I cant afford legit at this point but have never built a pc let alone a hackintosh before. Could you guys comment on my build? Will this run Mac OSX and is there anyway I might be able to squeeze out a little more HD video editing performance with some tweeks to my build? Also am I forgetting anything? Thanks guys!

    the more important thinks are motheboard chipset and Graphic Card
    after you need to check compability with ethernet audio driver/kext
    also look again what you chose, also:
    You motheboard is
    Intel P55 Express - ok
    CPU Socket Type LGA 1156 -ok
    Audio Chipset Realtek ALC888 - think its supported look google: "hackintosh ALC888"
    LAN Chipset Realtek 8111D - look google "hackintosh Realtek 8111D"

    and the rest find it out alone its not really hard

    RAM - Will this board take 3 sticks of RAM? I can't figure this out.

    it support up to 4 sticks of ram ?!

    TO MODERATORS:

    i have posted in this topic last night with a quite informative reply for the original poster, but a moderator removed my reply for some reason (why, for god sakes, why ?!?!?!?!?!).

    i noticed people link to other legitimate resources from here, and that's exactly what i did. i also mentioned some names (in order to credit them for their achievements). i was not aware that some of those names/resources are in FORUM FILTER (or not wanted here).

    if this is the case, you can put my name on the top of that list.

    i am not going to write the same thing twice, hoping my reply will miraculously re-appear here.
