    That said, here's what i'm looking at:

    Not sure if your Video Card will work, read about it here

    re: @TheRadHatter.....same issue here. greatly appreciate the hardware lists, but the most recent ones are already obsolete (motherboards aren't sold anymore). would love if someone could answer TheRadHatter and actually provide a LINK (!) to the instructions/guide for installation, instead of just saying "there's guides for that". This forum is all over the place and trying to find anything specific w/o a link is nearly impossible. thanks!!!

    Yeah this is an old thread, what you guys need to look for the most recent and similar mobo, dont go with foxconn or weird mobos like that, go with similar Gigabyte, Asus, EVGA or MSI, always look into the HCL for new hardware.

    Here is the link for the HCL: HCL 10.6.6 - OSx86

    P.S. Some Foxconn, Asrock work but lots of them are just trouble. I'll try to update this thread as soon as possible.

    Good Luck

    Perhaps I should look for a retail machine like yours?
    Was it an easy install with the HP m9250f?

    Default Hardware combos for new users

    I'm a new hackintosh user (6 days now). Having other things to spend my cash on besides a ~$2500 Mac Pro, but at the same time wanting more horsepower that my last generation Mac Mini, I decided to take my main PC over to the dark side.

    MB: ASUS P5E
    CPU:Intel Q9550 @ 2.83 GHZ, 12 MB cache
    RAM: 4 GB OCZ, 2 x 2 GB.
    Video: Radeon 4890
    Sound: Supreme FX II
    Storage: OS drive is a Seagate 250 GB SATA, addtional 1 and 1.5 TB Seagate drives for data.
    PSU: Antec 1 KW modular
    Case, trusty old Antec 1080 Pro, big and heavy but lots of space.

    Old school rig, but serviceable.
    I used iBoot and Mulibeast and had it up and running over a weekend, though it took two installs to do it. Sound works, ethernet and video work, defaulted to my Asus 1920 x 1080 monitor's native resolution. Nice and fast, stable, get the occasional spinning beachball, but disappears quickly. My next project is to install my 2nd 4890 to get crossfire going. If anyone has any pointers, that'd be great. I can live without the 2nd 4980, but I had in my Win 7 setup, and two vid cards are sooooo much nicer.
    I can't get sleep to work either, but it's not on my priority list, not even my mac mini sleeps, too many bad experiences with sleep in the Windows world, so all my machines just run.
    I must confess though, even though OS X is much more efficient at using system resources than Windows ever was, it runs much better with a quad core and 4 GB of ram. I can just watch those activity monitor graphs light up.

    Cheers

  12. Thanks yaren thanked for this post.

    I had posted this in another thread, but not seeing any action.
    Anyone be able to tell me if this machine would run SL 10.6.6 without too much trouble, or should I look for a different machine:
