Hackintosh Build [Hardware concerns]
Okay... so... soon I will be buying the parts for a Hackintosh/Gaming machine. Now, I am not 100% sure if the parts I have in sight will work together or will work with OSX Leopard. My main concerns are... well... will it work at all? Also... will I need a larger power supply/one that provides more wattage? Here are the hardware stats:
Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4GHz (2 x 4MB L2 Cache, LGA 775)
Motherboard: ASUS P5Q Pro, LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX
Video Card: Radeon HD 4870, 512MB, 256-bit GDDR5, PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP
Memory: Corsair 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin, DDR2 SDRAM
CD Drive: Sony NEC Optiarc (16x, 48x)
Hard Drive: Western Digital 500GB Caviar Sata
Power Supply: PC Power & Cooling, 750W Power Supply (ATX12V / EPS12V)
Any and all assistance is welcomed and loved.
As far as I know Processor, Video Card, Memory, CD Drive, Hard Drive, Power Supply should not be an issue.
Motherboard: ASUS P5Q Pro, LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX is something to check
Not sure if P45 is supported.. ICH10/ICH10R Chipset
I am not sure of what you mean. Are you meaning to say that you are unsure if "P45" is supported by Leopard... on the ICH10R Chipset, it notes in specifications "South Bridge - Intel ICH10R" while it also says "North Bridge - Intel P45".

So I did a little research, and here is what I came up with. Original post can be found here. I believe this is the problem you had been speaking about?

Did it work? I have the same video card on s system that I'm planning to convert to mac, but I was told that the Radeon HD 4870 512MB 256-bit GDDR5was not compatible... it doesn't appears on the wiki.osx86project.org list of compatible hardware either.
ATI 4870 got support with 10.5.7, check netkas site to get more info, good luck
