    Default I'm thinking about building a hackintosh - Noob

    I've never built a computer before so I'm especially noobie to building a hackintosh so bare with me. I'll have many questions i'll start off with the hardware I need. Any input is appreciated. Here is what I've been thinking so far but I guarantee this may not work.

    Motherboard
    Intel BOXDX58SO LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard
    NewEgg Link

    Processor
    Intel Core i7 920 Nehalem 2.66GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor
    NewEgg Link

    Memory
    CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
    NewEgg Link

    Graphics Card
    SPARKLE SX98GP1024D3-NM GeForce 9800 GTX+ 1GB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI
    NewEgg Link

    Hard Drive(s)
    OCZ Vertex Series OCZSSD2-1VTX30G 2.5" 30GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid state disk
    NewEgg Link
    SAMSUNG Spinpoint F1 HD103UJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5"
    NewEgg Link
    I would like to install the OS, the applications and games on the SDD and use the HD for music, games and movies.

    Blu-ray / DVD / CD Burner

    LG Black 6X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 6X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA Internal Blu-ray Burner 6X Blu-ray Disc Burner & HD DVD-ROM Drive Model GGW-H20L

    Power Supply

    Hey there,

    I'm actually starting a build today that is pretty simmilar.

    Main difference is that I'm using a GA-EX58-UD5 mobo and a raptor instead of a SSD.

    I haven't seen any mention of the blueray player you listed, but as I am using the same exact one for mine, I could try and let you know how it goes.

    If there would be one thing to pick out on your build, it might be the mobo. I have seen that mentioned a few times but then other mobos have always been suggested in its place. Everything else looks like it should work.

    Great combo you guys, start building those combos, research a bit about how to install on those or check the sticky to change the mobo, tips.. check info about DSDT Patch, Chameleon with DSDT Override, how to install Retail OSX, and good luck
