    Default Help with P55 i7 hackintosh build...

    I just need to know whether or not the hackintosh build I have would work, and what graphics I should use.

    I have in the current plan a Gigabyte GA-P55-UD3R with an i7 860 (2.8GHx), and with other things in place (Antec case+psu, hd, RAM, DVD Drive) I have between $200-$300 left for graphics.

    What graphics should I buy? I am clueless as to what cards are compatible.

    Thanks.

    as far as I know, the P55 boards still don't boot. I'm running the GA-P55-UD5 with an 860 and I can't get it to boot. I'm sure that it will someday...

    Just finished my last test. I decided to do 2 run throughs of the guide just to make sure that it was complete and accurate. As I was writing I decided to do a detailed guide for Leopard as well. So there are 2 guides, one to get Leopard running, then one to get Snow Leopard running.

    Good luck, and be sure to let me know any way I can improve them!
