    Default What hardware to buy?

    Hi there everyone,

    I'm new here, so let the trolling begin!!!
    Nah, serious. I have a lot of experience building PC's, but the thing is; I bought myself a Macbook Pro a few months ago and I fell in love with Mac OS.
    So now I've decided to build a Hackintosh, just for the lolz.

    I'm willing to spend around 1200-1400 euro's (that's probably a lot of dollars).

    I would love to go Sandy Bridge, like a 2600k, but something around a i7 950 is just fine too, of course.
    I understand a Gigabyte MB is the way to go, or am I talking BS?
    And what effin' card should I buy?! Something high-end like a 6970 or 570/580 would be just lovely. Of course I wouldn't mind using the old generation, if it's for the best.

    What do you guys think?

    I hope you are willing to help me out!
    Looking forward to all the comments.

    Ok, just to have an idea what I think would be AWESOME, I made a little list.

    Here goes.

    CPU: Intel Core i7 2600k
    MOBO: Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB PC3-12800, CAS 9
    GPU: MSI 6970 or MSI GTX570 (maybe even a Twin Frozr II)
    PSU: Antec Truepower Quattro 1000W

    So, what do you guys think? I know Sandy Bridge is a bit hard to get working, and going with the latest gpu hardware probably isn't the best idea either.
    But do you think I can pull this off, this will be my first Hackintosh.

    Thanks in advance.
