    Default Are these components compatible with a hackintosh setup?

    Hey, I have purchased the following so far and am wondering if it is possible to dual boot windows and hackintosh on it:

    -DX48BT2 Intel Motherboard
    -Visiontek Radeon HD4870 X2 2GB GDDR5 256-bit PCI-Express 2.0 Graphics Card
    -Samsung SpinPoint F1 Series 1TB 300gb/s SATA II Hard drive
    -Some relatively new Sony External CD/DVD drive that I am using on my current setup (I don't remember the exact model and I don't have it with me right now because I am on someone elses computer.

    (All other parts are pending. I have not bought them yet.)

    Intended Processor: Q9650 Intel 3.0 Ghz, eventually will switch to QX9770

    Intended RAM: At least 4GB of 1600Mhz 240 Pin DDR3 DIMM (at most will purchase 8GB)

    Ok, but I thought that macs required a special type of ram. I'm not really familiar with the architecture of macs.

    Hmm, so 1600mhz won't work? Will I see a noticable hit in performance? Also, why does crucial.com have a "mac memory" section?

    You dont need special memory or like you say mac memory, we all here use normal stuff, but as you know apple dont use all the new stuff in their machines, so far I know DDR3 1333 will work, I dont think it gonna be a huge jump from 1600, what I can say, I use DDR2 800 XD

    So basically, it might work, but it hasn't really been tested? Well, my computer project doesn't have to be a hackintosh. And I figure that it will eventually be supported anyway since apple doesn't want to be left behind. I'll try it out and report back to see what happens.
