    Default HP m9600t Elite; Hardware Help?

    I'm not sure if this is in the right section, but it seemed fitting. If it's not, could a moderator please move it? Please, and thanks.

    Going on, could anyone tell me if my PC is compatible for installing OS X? I've been googling around lurking here and at hackint0sh and I'm not sure if it is compatible with Intel X58 Express + Intel Core i7 920, or it is. I see answers that "Yes! It's happened!" and "No, it's still incompatible."

    My PC will include:

    Base processor
    -Core-i7-920 2.66 GHz (130W)
    -QPI 4.8GT/s
    -Socket 1366

    Chipset
    -Intel X58 Express

    Motherboard
    -Manufacturer: Pegatron
    -Motherboard Name: IPMTB-TK
    -HP/Compaq motherboard name: Truckee-UL8E



    Could anyone for me confirm if it's possible to run OS X 10.5 on this PC?

    Well I'm sure as hell not going to even attempt to install it. Could take me a couple days, and I'm not willing to do that, especially because my graphics card, (GTS 250 from March 2009) is too new, and obviously, isn't supported.

    Except that's a GTS 200. It's not exactly the same. I mean, I've read about the GTS 250's support all around on google with people using EFI's from the, I can't remember, 8800 GTX or 9800 GTX (My memory's jogged) and they recall that it would work for a while, but then the screen would start flickering, crashing, etc. And all kinds of video card problems.

    I think I'd be better off just waiting for support on this. Do you have any ideas as to how long it could take until my computer could be supported? Along with graphics etc.? (Not too the point of flawlessly working, because that won't really happen )
