    Default osx on this Gigabyte mobo?

    Hey guys

    Okay i might be getting my hands on this motherboard soon.

    GA-P31-DS3L

    link---http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Motherboard/Products_Overview.aspx?ProductID=2615


    Will osx work okay on it?

    I heard good things about Gigabyte motherboards and osx working nicely together.

    other hardware

    Core 2 Quad Q6600
    5Gb PC2 6400 Memory
    250Gb Sata gard drive
    XFX 4890 XT 1024MB
    X-FI Soundblaster extreme 7.1
    2x IDE DVD-RW

    I currently have a MSI P35 Neo-F motherboard,But this mobo is crap for osx x86 due to its chipset..hence why im going to the gigabyte p31 board,even though its older i hope this gigabyte board will work.

    Both mobo should work, But your MSI need a BIOS MOD, for gigabyte you can get lots of guides, google it

    Thats a lie, you can mod your BIOS and still dual boot with Windows, check my signature ;P
