Does this look like a good build for a hackintosh. Keep in mind I will be installing vista on a sperate hard drive. I am a graphic art student and I need a mac at home, but also am a hardcore gamer and need a PC. Cant afford both though hehe.
Also if I have vista on one HD, leopard on another, if I get a third HD just for extra storage will both OS's be able to use it?
Thanks in advance, I appreciate any and all tips and advice.
i just finished a hack build and have a very similar system to you. One of the main things i was told was to use a P35 intel board as they are renowned for compatibility. Im running:
intel gostepping 2.4ghz quad,
intel p35ds3R mobo
4ghz ocz ram (667)
250gb western digital HDD (16mb cache)
500gb western digital HDD (16mb cache)
the only thing i cant get to work is the wireless as i have a linksys pci card that isnt recognised by OSX.
everything else works spot on and with the patches even get updates to work no problems.
as for the third drive you will be able to read from and write to it as normal if it is in windows format in windows but will only be able to read from it through mac. my Mac OS is currently installed on the 250 and can read the 500 which is still fully windows but cant delete anything on it or write to it. vids music etc can be used as normal
oh forgot to mention im using a nvidia 7600 gt 256mb and with the patch works fine and i know from a different build that 8800 cards are supported as m friend has one and has done the same as me. and there are lists on internet of compatable wireless cards. need to be a certain chipset or somethin
Yes nvidia 7600 gt 256mb is supported.
wish i could get my card working, x3100 be damned
I was wondering if anyone can help me with this build?

Does anyone see any problems here or have any tips for this build also? I wanna make a hacintosh for my music editing and I need as much help as I can cause I'm a complete n00b hehe. Any help would be appreciated. Also can anyone recommend a good dvd burner that would go good with the build? Thanks!
