    Default How will this be for a hackintosh system?

    I'm a bit new to the Hackintosh building concept but I have built PC's in the past. I have put together these list of components in hopes of it being a sound dependable Hackintosh system. I am building this system for my wife who will primarily be using it to run Final Cut Pro 6. What do you think of this setup? Will the OS X install go smoothly and operation be stable? What method do you recommend and how difficult will it be? I was trying to do this for $500. Thank you!

    Everything looks great, Im not so sure about your motherboard, try with gigabyte ones, better compatibility, there lots of thread about this in the hardware section ;P

    Default Thanks

    Thanks for the help. I've looked into the Gigabyte motherboards but the models I've seen mentioned don't seem to be readily available as new items from online merchants. can you recommend one that is? Will it be the best as far as functionality with as little difficulty as possible?

    Thanks again!
