Hello everyone, i pretty much finished a build i want to make but I have a few questions.

Ive been using a macbook pro for a few years now and i think its time to upgrade to a gaming pc since ive always wanted one.

Here is the link to my build, feel free to give any opinions or changes i should make before I purchase: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Ramster125/saved/#savedbui...

Anyway my question that I want to ask you guys is that if i buy this setup, will i be able to make a second partition of the boot drive as a mac?

I keep hearing about the idea of Hackintoshes and im interested

So if making the partition is possible, will this reduce quality in either the windows partition or the mac? Like will it reduce gaming quality and speed.

Im still new to all of the PC gaming world.

Thanks guys for your input on this. Means a lot

You should be fine Here is a guide if you need it >>https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3777028/2013%20Hack...


I have another question, would it be possible to run both the mac and windows partition at the same time?
What i mean by this is have two seperate hard drives for each only, and then run them on two seperate monitors coming out of the one computer?

This is helpful but it wasnt what i was asking. I was asking if its possible to boot both the partitions at the same time. So I can literaly have it that the mac partition would be on one monitor and the pc partition would be on the other at the same time.
