    Armalite, did you finally get the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 260+ OC 896MB?

    DVI + HDMI works with two screens?

    Im very interested in that card.

    Thanks!

    Yep, it's the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 260+ OC 896MB! But at the moment I only have one screen with DVI so i haven't been able to test HDMI and dual screens yet. I'll probably get a new screen in the near future and then I'll test that. Will update here when I know.

    But ofc there are a few things that doesn't work as expected:
    I have to boot with -v cpus=1 busratio=20

    About This Mac result in a black screen and then back to desktop

    *Actually QE and CI is not confirmed but front row, screensaver & dashboard works flawlessly.

    After a while the sound gets crackles on playback. ALC888. Any ideas?

    And it seems like i have no font smooting coz there is no difference when i change that option. This is a big disappointment coz thats one of the reasons i love OSX, their way to render fonts. Maybe there is a fix for that?

    :::UPDATE:::
    If I boot with -v cpus=4 busratio=20 i get all the cores!

    Just wondering what options you selected in the installer? I have yet to get my box to boot.

    Chameleon v2
    /Extra directory
    DSDT
    AppleDecrypt
    9.7.0 Kernal voodoo
    Disabler

    ext2fs
    NTFS-3G
    Realtek R1000

    And I had to enable AHCI in bios to be able proceed.

    Impressed by what you two have accomplished.

    Can we have a run down of what is working / not working?

    You gave some speed results. I'm a noob and have no reference. Is this fast? Is it running as quickly as it should?

    Are you satisfied with what you've built?

    Thanks,

    Herb

    Well, let me put it this way. This is the fastest "mac" I ever used. I dual-boot win7 and I have more problems with win7 than with OSX! I thought it would be contrary!

    There are absolutely no slowdowns or hangups! No kernel panics. Everything runs snappy and smooth.

    For me everything works except the I can't boot without the flags.
    As I never use sleep-functions I have no idea if they work.
    And I haven't tried Time Machine yet.

    Also audio is fixed now by a newer kext. No more crackles.

    The biggest issue I've got is that 3 of 10 boots will fail. It just stops loading at some point. A quick reset solves that problem.

    And gz Ed_Saxman! Did 260 worked out of the box? no kext or efi-strings?

    Smile My config

    In a first moment, Ive replaced my 8800GTS with the new GTX260, and Snow Leopard booted correctly with the old EFI string. (So I didnt tried if it works OOTB)

    5 minutes later, I generated a new custom-taylored EFI String for the 260 using gfxutil.

    My config is:

    Gigabyte EP45-DQ6
    C2D 8400 3.0Ghz
    4GB RAM OCZ Reaper X
    5,5 TB HD (Western Digital Caviar Black, caviar green, and Seagate .11 models)
    Gigabyte Nvidia GTX260+ OC 898 MB
    NOX Urano 600W power source
    BenQ G2400WD 24" 16:10

    Running Snow Leopard Retail 10.6.1 (64 bits mode) and windows XP (also Ubuntu 9 and win 7, but not so much)

    I have ZERO issues. My Hack PRO is simply PERFECT. ALL WORKS flawnlessly!! (As it was with 10.5.x and the GTS8800, including sleep & wake)
    I have to say I have many years of experience with OS X (Allways with Hackintosh), but it was VERY easy with Snow Leo.
    You can visit my website/Forum at AppleOSX86.com (in spanish).

    EDIT:

    Here is my EFI String:
    Code:
    <key>device-properties</key>
    	<string>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</string>

    Armalite,

    I think you are the only person I have read that has a functioning i5 Hackintosh. I guess I should follow your example exactly.

    Gigabyte GeForce GTX 260+ OC 896MB //Is this card 10.6 only?

    And also, what is to prefer, 2 separate HDDs or 1 with 2 partitions for dual-booting with windows 7?

    Thanks in advance
    I'd recommend that board for sure- I have my UD2 working with Snow Leopard retail (everything but sleep), Check out this site for methods, dsdt, and more for P55 boards: tonymacx86's P55 Hackintosh Blog
