    Default Hackintosh Intel Q9650

    Ok so I've got my eye on the Intel Q9650 processor, which looks to be a solid processor. Not going to the i7 yet, so will stick with the quad core. I am looking for a really good motherboard to go with this processor. I've looked at a couple of Gigabyte's and an ASUS as well.

    What I am looking to do is a little gaming, video, and a little graphics. Need a solid board to handle all this and of course some other parts.

    I plan on installing the new Snow Leopard as well. Will need to run wireless as I do not have Ethernet up in the office and the network is downstairs, so I will just use a compatible wireless card to get access to the network.

    My question is, to the pro's who have done this, what is a solid board I can use for my Q9650, as well 4-6 gigs of memory? Looking for the best combination to get my system started. Thanks for any recommendations!

    Now I am off to read a little more.....

    I think most gigabyte mobos will work

    Here a guide a list with lots of asus mobos with osx support
    -_- P5Q PRO & MAC OS X Leopard 10.6 (10A432 ) Retail -_- - InsanelyMac Forum

    You can always post a mobo, we can tell you if it will work, check in the HCL, pick one and compare prices ;D

    Thanks for the quick reply. Would like to shoot for a Gigabyte board, as those seem to be the most successful when using OSX. Also any shot I can use the retail Snow Leopard install with a certain board?? Many thanks!!

    From what I have seen and read, this seems to be a solid board?

    GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P

    Just don't understand what the difference is between this one and the other 30 boards they make....lol.
