    Default Looking for the simplest P45 mobo to install osx86

    I've been doing a lot of reading and some boards require more work than others but I'm looking for suggestions on the simplest P45 board with Q8200 to install osx86 on. Something I don't have to flash with modded bios or apply a bunch of fixed kets to make work. I'm cool with bios settings and stuff, but am trying to stay away from anything more complicated. I'd also like to know which osx86 build you'd suggest with the board and a link to an installation tutorial if you know of one.

    I'm also looking at the 9600 GT but if you have better suggestions that the OS supports out of the box I'm all ears. The machine will be used for photography and videography editing.

    Thanks for the help and suggestions.

    yeah, read the sticky. the two boards i'm looking at are:

    GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3R
    GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P

    small difference between the boards but could be a much larger difference when installing osx. was looking for opinions.

    decided on the following equipment:
    Case: Rosewill R512BS 500W
    Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3R
    CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200
    Memory: G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB)
    Video: GeForce 9600 GT 512MB
    Drive: WD Caviar Black WD6401AALS 640GB 7200 RPM
    DVD: SAMSUNG 22X DVD±R DVD SATA SH-S223Q

    Using this guide:
    http://auzigog.com/2008/12/23/hackintosh-20/

    I'm hoping there's no difference between the UD3R vs UD3P installation. One thing that isn't mentioned is which osx86 build to download.
