i hav this old forgotten desktop PC hanging around running old XP, then i thought, what if...
yeah, so, do you guys think it's possible 2 run this old fella in a Mac OSX86 environment?...and i mean, absolutely any, i'm not picky about Mac OS X distro's, leopard, tiger, any1 of them is just fine by me, what i'm looking 4 is the 1 that works best!
Just in case you guys thinks it's actually possible 2 do this and with acceptable usability, then what distro/drivers/changes do you reckon i'd have 2 do 2 get it workin properly?
Appreciate your help!

Intel i865P/PE/G/i848P rev. A2 + Intel 82801EB (ICH5) rev. 02 (Model: Micro-Star 6788)

Greetings, any input appreciated!
I discovered this forum while browsing how to make your own perfect hackintosh that will be able to run Windows 7 as well. After my research I've decided on the following parts:

Wireless Card (TBD) - Any suggestions?
It seems like this would work, does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks so much for helping me on my first build!
The version I used is iDeneb v1 since is the only one that seemed working, i also tried the 1.4 but failed and the iAtkos v7 but failed, haven't tried the new iDeneb v.1.5 or 1.6. because if i can find the drivers there i would download it.

I tried the multiple versions of the iAtkos dvd in 3 other machines, and no good. iDeneb went well. Only sound and wifi isn't working. I am replacing the wifi card with something other than the intel 3945 (maybe a dell 1490). The only issue is sound. Any ideas?

Bought the parts for my new hackintosh. Trying to setup a dual boot Snow Leopard (primary) and Win7 (secondary - occasional gaming)
Here are the list of the main components:
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5
Chip: Intel Core i7-920
RAM: 6GB DDR3 Kingston 1600 (3 x 2GB)
Video: Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 4890 1GB Standard Reference
HDD: Seagate SATA 500GB x 2

Going to pickup OSX Snow Leopard retail and Win 7 Ultimate retail and setup system this weekend. Any advise or help would be much appreciated!
Hi, im buying the parts for a i7 machine which is going to be used for music production, was wondering if these parts will work and how i go about install osx, sorry im completely new to this but would appreciate any help.
Intel Nehalem i7 920 S1366 2.66GHz (Will be over clocked to 4gig when I get water cooling, would osx still work over clocked? sorry if its a stupid question, a friend is going to be over clocking it and helping me build it, I don't know that much about it)
Either ASUS P6T SE - motherboard - ATX - iX58 or Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD3R
Kingston KHX14400D3T1K3 / 3GX HyperX T1 / 3GB / 1800MHz DDR3 DIMM / Triple Channel Kit
500GB Maxtor DiamondMax 23 SATA 3Gb/s Hard Drive
Gainward GeForce GTX 260 GS
Optiarc (Sony/NEC) 20X DVD+/-RW IDE BLACK
MAUDIO Fast Track Pro Sound card I already have, I assume it should just work with the drivers on there site.
Will this work? would I be able to get Snow Leopard work on it? Thanks again.
This will be Dual Booted with Windows 7
