    Cool Potential i7 Hackintosh config

    Hi

    After doing my research (Hackintosh.org, osx86project.org, insanelymac.com, buildahackintosh.com) I've come up with my shortlist for my own hackintosh. But before ordering all the parts I thought I'd post on a forum and get feedback, and where better than here!? ..so here is it;

    - Intel Core i7 920 D0 Stepping (SLBEJ) 2.66Ghz (likely to be overclocked)
    - Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 Intel X58 (Socket 1366) PCI-Express DDR3 Motherboard
    - Corsair XMS3 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 (1600MHz) Tri-Channel
    - XFX GeForce GTX 260 Black Edition 896MB GDDR3 PCI-Express Graphics Card
    - Noctua NH-U12P SE1366 CPU Cooler
    - Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB SATA-II 32MB Cache - OEM
    - LG GH22NS40 22x DVD±RW SATA Dual Layer ReWriter (Black)
    - Corsair TX 650W ATX SLi Compliant Power Supply

    My main areas of concern are for the GTX 260 and the LG DVDRW (-;

    EDIT: I need dual monitors to work (2x 1920x1200 over 2xDVI) (hence concern for GTX 260)
    EDIT: I'm looking to run 10.6.2

    Looking forward to hearing from you,

    Thanks in advance!

    Toby

    Default Will hardware RAID work?

    I'm planning on getting a similar setup, except maybe a different Video card (GTS 250). I was wondering if there are any guides on setting up a hardware RAID controller/card with this mobo? and on any os version. Or is it even possible?

    I'd like to try doing a RAID 0 setup with a SSD and a HDD, if at all possible?
