    This is what is on my list at the moment, and before i shell over £900, i just wanted to make sure there was nothing i was missing, or if i had something on the list that would cause me problems during the installation process.

    Antec Sonata III V2 Case - With 500W PSU - £92
    ASUS P7P55D-E PRO iP55 Socket 1156 8 Channel Audio USB3 ATX Motherboard - £150
    Intel Core i7 860 2.8GHz Socket LGA 1156 8MB L3 Cache Retail Boxed Processor - £240
    Gigabyte GT 240 1GB GDDR3 DVI HDMI Out PCI-E Graphics Card - £70
    G-Skill 8GB (4x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz/PC3-12800 - £100
    OCZ 120GB Vertex 2 SSD 3.5" SATA-II - £175
    Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 ST3500641AS-RK 500GB SATAII - £45
    LiteOn IHAS124-19 24x DVD±RW DL & RAM SATA Optical Drive - £10

    All prices listed are roughly rounded.
    Hoping to get this ordered before next week and just needed a hackintosh 'pro' to have a quick look through the list and see if i will have any incompatibilities etc.

    Already have a copy of SL from my MacBook.

    Hi Icchansan - thanks for providing such a great resource!

    I'm about to start buying hardware for a new build, I'd like to know what you think about it:

    Intel Core i7-870 Lynnfield 2.93GHz
    GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366
    CORSAIR XMS 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000
    SAPPHIRE Vapor-X 100281VX-2SR Radeon HD 5870 1GB
    Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB 7200 RPM HD
    COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M700 RS-700-AMBA-D3 700W
    COOLER MASTER RC-692-KKN2 CM690 II Mid Tower Case

    I put this list together a little while ago, I do have two other questions. First, is there still a problem with installs on media larger than 1 TB? Second, is there any problem with 2 GB graphics cards? I'm planning on using the iBoot+Multibeast method.

    Thanks again, and have a great day!

    +$12.30 for shipping
    * I already have a DVD drive.
    Total = $391.21
    However, I may go ahead and order another lite-on for around $20 which would bring the total to $411.21.

    According to the hardware database the graphics card and motherboard should work with Snow Leopard perfectly.
    I guess I'll have to wait and see how true that is.


    The cheapest intel quadcore I could find still available is the Q8300/2.5Ghz/4MB for $149 at newegg which would add $94.02 to my bill. Tempting but, that's way way way over my unemployment budget. I suppose I could cut up the graphics card budget and get something really old like a 7600gs for around $45 which would cut about $30 from the budget. Then you could maybe cut down to 2GB of ram and save another $30 but for a total of $60 in savings bringing the total cost with the quadcore to around $425 - $450 depending on whether or not you need the DVD burner. I'd be more concerned with ram and screen resolution since I'm using this thing for 480p or 720p 5-minute-short-film video editing. I'm sure the quadcore with double the cache will help a lot but, a dual core running at 2.7Ghz stock, that is known to hit 3.5Ghz on stock cooling, with 4GB of ram should be fine for only rendering 5-10 minute short films.

    All my other rendering and editing such as Maya, Photoshop, After Effects, Unity, etc are done on my AMD Quadcore Win7 machine.

    Ok, so I'm looking for a cheap build. Yes, I read the original combos posted on here, but when I went to look for the components for the cheap build one (on both NewEgg and TigerDirect) half the parts don't exist/aren't for sale anymore.
    Also, I have never built a computer and would be having a friend help me. So I'm sorry if my request below sounds ridiculous, because I'm not sure what is/isn't normal for this type of thing.

    So I'm looking for something, probably similar to Brightico's, but with a Core 2 Duo instead of Quad, and also a cheaper video card and smaller hard drive to cut the cost closer to $300-350. Any suggestions for those 3 items?
    I would like the video card to be equal to/better than either: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 or ATI Radeon HD 3850 so that on the Windows side I could still play games like Champions Online e.t.c.....

    Oh, and I'd like to be able to run 10.6.6 also. Thank you!

    (first post, new here)

    Default build for work

    ok, so im trying to get a high-performance build for work. first off, what is the reliability of a hackintosh? I know there will be some hurdles and tweaks that will have to be made, but once it is up and running, could I expect it to be relatively bug free? or am I looking at having to band-aid solutions for everything I do?

    That said, here's what i'm looking at:
    ~GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

    ~Intel Core i7-960 Bloomfield 3.2GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80601960

    ~GIGABYTE Super Overclock Series GV-N480SO-15I GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) 1536MB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

    ~OCZ RevoDrive OCZSSDPX-1RVD0120 PCI-E x4 120GB PCI Express MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

    ~Rosewill Green Series RG530-S12 530W Continuous @40°C, 80 PLUS Certified, Single 12V Rail, Active PFC "Compatible with Core i7,i5" Power Supply

    ~G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9Q-16GBXL

    ~COOLER MASTER Hyper N 520 RR-920-N520-GP 92mm Sleeve CPU Cooler Intel Core i7 compatible
