    Default 1st-time Hackintosh build feedback thread

    Hey all -
    Looking for some help building a music-producer friend of mine build a Hackintosh.

    His target rig: 12-core Mac Pro
    His budget: Make it cheaper than buying a Mac Pro

    His ideal MacBook (from Apple's site):

    - Two 2.66GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon “Westmere” processors
    - 6GB (six 1GB) memory
    - 1TB hard drive
    - 18x double-layer SuperDrive
    - ATI Radeon HD 5770 with 1GB GDDR5
    - $4,999.00
    I've built dozens of rigs - including servers - but never anything of this caliber and this would also be my first Hackintosh...

    Aside from sourcing these parts, what else do I need to take into consideration?

    Can a home-built PC/Hackintosh perform at the level of a store-bought MacPro?
    What other suggestions, tips, feedback could you guys give me?

    *edit - and I just realized I posted this on the x86 forum.... sorry for the noob question but in order to accomodate that RAM capacity, is there a 64-bit OS from Apple or does the x86 version not have the RAM limitations that Windows does?
