    Default Looking to build a hackintosh

    First I thought about getting a Mac mini. But when reading about the hackintosh I realized how overpriced and underpowered the mini is. It sacrifices value for space. I'm looking for something with much more processing power, so I can quickly turn dvd rips into mpeg-4 files, work with photos in iPhoto, and stream/sync media with a few Apple TVs.

    I'm basing the system around the Intel Core 2 Duo Wolfdale E8500 3.16GHz w/ 6MB L2 Cache
    (but I don't mind using the 3.0 GHz E8400 if I can get more compatibility)

    Motherboard: Intel DG31PR microATX
    (I've read good things about this board, especially the fact that only the integrated audio needs a patch when using the 10.5.2 leopard install, but I'm open to other manufacturers and form factors)

    RAM: Looking for 2x2GB config. Open to suggestions.

    Video card: Nothing too special. Looking at Gigabyte ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro 512MB
    (I've read that you need the ATIRadeonX2000 Leopard.pkg patch. Wouldn't mind using a comparable nVidia card instead if someone recommended one)

    Hard drive: Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST31000340AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s
    (Intel DG31PR's SATA should work out of the box. I may use a Seagate 500GB drive if I'm feeling cheap.)

    Optical Drive: Samsung WriteMaster SH-S203B SATA
    (Just looking for something that can read DVD+R DLs)

    This is my first time doing this so I would really appreciate comments on hardware compatibility or suggestions for different hardware for better compatibility.

    freakshot17:

    I see in another post you have ga-p35-ds3x .. board ..
    I have the same .. p35-ds3g .. and I can't get audio to work. Systems sees no audio .. (built in), lspci says it's intel audio ... the manual says it's ALC 662.
    Any pointers on how to get it work ?

    i did try Azaliainstaller.pkg .. and that says it installed .. but no audio or devices still.

    Thanks for any help

    Default ASUS Maximus II Formula Build

    All,

    I am currently looking to purchase an ASUS Maximus II Formula motherboard (http://usa.asus.com/products.aspx?l1...mp;modelmenu=1). I would like to run both Vista 64 bit and Mac OS X on the computer if possible. I was wondering if anyone has successfully installed Mac OS X on this motherboard. If it can not be successfully installed, then I may have look at the ASUS Rampage Formula motherboard (http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?l1...mp;modelmenu=1), but there are some features on the Maximus II Formula board that I prefer. Other system specs will be as follows:

    Thermaltake Xaser VI Case
    Thermaltake Toughpower 850W Modular Power Supply
    Q6600 CPU
    Zalman 9700 Cooler
    2x2GB Corsair 8500 DDR2 w/ Cooling Fan
    BFG 8800 GTX Video Card
    6 x 500 GB Seagate SATA Drives

    If anyone can let me know if they have had success or problems with the Maximus motherboard, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
