    Default Hardware compatibility question

    First, I would like to apologize for my first post being a question that most of you would find simple, but I'm having difficulty finding the answer through the site, the osx86 wiki and google.

    Now, my question(s)

    First, is there any way to get this hardware setup to work?

    Mobo: ASRock 4core1600P35-wifi+
    Processor: Intel C2D E8400 Wolfdale
    Graphics: ASUS EAH4850 Radeon HD4850
    Memory: Corsair XMS2 4GB (2x2GB) 240pin DDR2 800 (PC6400)
    HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 SATA 3.0Gb/s

    If this hardware setup is indeed suitable as a hackintosh, what version of OSX should I run?

    Looks great but you will need to MOD your BIOS or install retail, I think macnut already MOD your BIOS check his site, the link is in the Sticky, about your video check netkas site, I think theres support for your video there.

    Update: Posting from my Hackintosh. However, I'm unable to find the appropriate drivers for my realtek ACL890 audio chipset, so no sound for me =(, and I still have to use cpus=1 to get the computer to boot, even after flashing the bios. Will have to use the 1.30 instead of 1.40 bios for my mobo, I suspect. Guess I'll have to figure out how to flash my bios with OSX. I really appreciate your help, though. Overall I'm very happy.
