Came here to get some info on building my own hackintosh desktop. Currently I have a 2010 15" MBP i7 2.66 and while this is nice to use at school and everything I would like to build a desktop to keep at home that I will be able to use with dialup(yes dialup is my only option at home) possibly and move away from windows all together. Looked at a Mac Mini but they are too expensive for the specs and yes I know, spent a pretty penny on my MBP.

Can anyone recommend a mobo, processor(prefer quadcore atleast 2.3+), decent graphics card able to handle photoshop and cad programs(not crysis), and the other essentials. Would be great if this would be around $400-$500.
