    Wondered if anyone can answer this. I have read the suggestions on hardware config but, does anyone know if they would all work well with Snow Leopard? If not what is the highest version known to work well?

    Setup:

    Motherboard: Asus M4A785TD-M EVO (µATX, Sound, HDMI, VGA, G-LAN, RAID)

    Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 955 (Boxed, OPGA, "Deneb", Black Edition)

    Video: Gainward GTS250 (Retail, HDMI, DVI)

    Hard Drive:Western Digital WD6400AAKS 640 GB (Caviar Blue)

    Memory: G.Skill DIMM 4 GB DDR3-1333 Kit (F3-10666CL7D-4GBRH, Ripjaws-Serie)

    Power Supply:
    Chieftec GPS-500AB (2x PCIe)

    DVDRW Serial ATA:LG GH-22NS (Bulk)

    Here's my proposed build, heavily based off of both Apple's i5/i7 iMac specs and the build that tonymacx86 has done.

    Link to spreadsheet, with newegg links: Snow Leopard p55 Hackintosh

    Screenshot of spreadsheet:



    I can't guarantee that this combo will work but tonymacx86 is using a GA-P55M-UD2 board and an i7 successfully with Snow Leopard 10.6.2.

    Hello,
    Is there a much to loose if I pick G31/41M motherboard, instead of full ATX one?
    These 2 have needless on board graphic chip (at least for the hackintosh), 2 memory slots are ok (I don't think I will need more than 4 gigs-2x2), I do not care for the lack of firewire and dozens of USB's and Sata connectors ( 4 would be planty), but maybe the onboard audio chip could be better ( I have a Live 5.1 and I think it should be working, doesn't it) and the OC potential is definitely worse than with the more expensive mobo's (although still not worth the extra $$$).
    I would like a decent quality motherboard, with quality components that would serve me for years. Is there affordable one (price range like G31/41 or so) without graphic chip, because if they save on it, they can put more in something more useful, correct, maybe a P31 or P43?

    Default Basic hackintosh & Snow Leopard

    Hi all

    I am wanting to build the cheap hackintosh listed here prior with the following specs:


    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-G31M-ESL2
    Processor: Core 2 Duo E2200
    Video: Nvidia 7300 GS, 8600 GT
    Memory: 2GB RAM DDR2
    Hard Drive: 1x300GB 7200 rpm
    Power Supply 350/450w
    DVDRW Serial ATA

    I have a full retail version of Snow Leopard.

    My question is will this run snow leopard and once i have set up the hardware what is the process i should undertake? If someone could point me in the right direction that would be great.

    Many thanks Bruce

    I think P43 will be ok for you if you dont need a full ATX mobo, go for it and report back your progress

    Default Thanks!

    Thanks for the reply.... am having some difficulty sourcing the processor though.... would a later one in the same family be okay... can you suggest a few? Also compatible sata internal dvd's seem to be a bit elusive is there a brand and a few models you can suggest.

    Thanks again... regards bruce

    Yeh this is kinda old post, try with Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 or Core 2 Quad Q8200 they are kinda cheap. About the sata dvd brands, try to buy the popular ones

    Default Motherboard onboard graphics

    Hi again

    This is the build i am intending going with after comparing prices and trying to source parts.

    • Intel Pentium Dual Core E6300 2.8GHz LGA775 With Original Fan and Heatsink
    • Samsung SH-S223F Black Internal 22x Speed DVD Drive
    • Kingston ValueRAM 1GB DDR2-800MHz PC-6400 Non-ECC CL5 DIMM Desktop Memory
    • Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L G31 mAtx Motherboard


    My question is whether the onboard graphics will work and if not what would be a good graphics card... i would eventually get a graphics card anyway as i would like to be able to play Total War Rome when it is released for Mac. Just wanting to check i can get this all working

    Thanks again... keen to get started....

    Cheers Bruce

    I think the internal video will work but you better get a cheap video card with osx support
