Switch a 2011 iMac for a Hackintosh
Hi guys, ripventura here.
I hope you can help me with my case...
A couple of years ago (5 - 7) I used to have a PC and love to use my hackintosh.
The problem at that time was that the hardware requirements were a pain in the ***, and was pretty common to have some parts like audio / wifi cards not working properly...
I got tired of the hacking thing and bought a MacBook White, and now I have this:
iMac 21.5" Mid 2011, i5 Quad-core 2.5GHz, AMD 6750M 512MB, 12GB RAM DDR3
It's a pretty good build for common tasks, even dealing with some video editing (the 12GB RAM works like charm) and some "XCoding" (I'm an iOS developer).
The thing is that I really want to build a hardcore gaming beast, and for that I must sell my iMac.
On the other hand, I CAN'T abandon Mac OSX (1: Because it's not even comparable to windows 2: I need it for work).
Here's the PC I'm about to buy:
i7 3770 3.4GHz, AMD 7870 2GB (or G-Force GTX 660-Ti 2GB), 8GB DDR3 Corsair Vengeance, Mother Board MSI H61MU-B35.
My question is: Is it a good choice to dump a really good iMac, and start depending on hacks to use Mac OSX (but with the hardware 5x better)?
Thanks in advance! ;)
