Need help building perfect (or close) hackintosh
I have looked around and decided upon these things. I want it to be as close to a fully working mac. So please leave any suggestions on compatibility and what you think would be better.
I am looking to make it so thats its very simple to get fully working and that it does video editing, graphic and web design. (Adobe After Effects, Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Flash, Final Cut Pro) I hope to be able to run atleast 3 at the same time withought lagging. I can currently run 2 withought much lag on a very weak 1.79ghz intel pentium dual core with 2gb of ram and a intel gma950.
