    Default i7 Build -- Will this work with OSX86?

    Hey guys,

    I'm a fairly tech-savvy guy, but I am pretty new to the Hackintosh world. I'm about to build a PC, and it would be awesome if I could get it to run OSX86. This is what I currently have, will it work?

    Motherboard: EVGA 132-BL-E758-A1 X58 3SLI
    CPU: Intel Core i7 920 2.66Ghz
    Memory: 2Gx3 Corsair DDR3TR3X6G1333C9
    Video Card: VGA EVGA 01G-P3-1285-AR GTX285

    I really appreciate any assistance here. I don't need to be walked through the process, but any useful links would be helpful. Thanks a lot!

    The Geforce 200's arent supported in Leopard. Next month however, Geforce is coming out with a 285 Mac Edition which will work (kinda fearful of how much this will be, heh). Also, you will find support for the 200's arriving in Snow Leopard.

    So, you could wait for one of the two above options or switch cards. The Geforce GTX+ 9800 is supported, which is far from a bad card. Also, there are numerous ATI cards supported including the 4970 which I believe to be near comparable with the 285, possibly slightly worse.

    Best of luck with your build!
