    Default Dell OptiPlex Compatibility with Snow Leopard

    Hello everybody, I have been interested in making a Hackintosh for a while now. The only problem is that my main computer has an AMD processor which I know is not preferable to Intel processors due to both compatibility and community support reasons. So I am going to buy an Intel computer. The cheapest Intel computers I can find are both Dell Optiplex with Pentium 4 processers. Can somebody tell me if these are compatible with Snow Leopard? I looked around but could only find outdated info, nothing on Snow Leopard. The specs are:

    Dell OptiPlex GX280
    # Intel Pentium 4 3.0 GHz processor
    # 1 GB DDR2 RAM
    # 80 GB SATA hard drive
    #Integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900

    Or

    Dell OptiPlex GX620
    # Intel Pentium 4 630 3.0 GHz CPU
    # 1 GB of DDR2 SDRAM
    # 80 GB SATA Hard Drive
    # DVD±RW Drive
    # Integrated Intel Graphic Media Accelerator 950
    # AC97, Sound Blaster emulation audio type
    # 16-bit analog-to-digital; 20-bit digital-to-analog stereo conversion
    # Integrated 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN
    # Intel 945 Express Chipset
    # 280-watt power supply

    If anyone could give me current info about compatibility with Snow Leopard it would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

    Thanks for the reply. However, I am now going to buy a computer with core 2 duo processor just so I can install vanilla kernel and therefore safely update through Apple.
