Hackintosh Setup Tags: Configuration Computers Mac OS X Last response: May 24, 2012 4:14 AM in Mac Os X Share iNever-Joke January 15, 2012 8:31:17 AM Hey guys, I've just ordered a new computer (specs below) and am wondering if it's possible to do a proper hackintosh setup on it. I've never done it before, ever. If there are any hardware risks involved that can completely destroy my internals, please advise me on whether I should take the plunge or not. Any guides, advice etc would be helpful Is it practical to be using a hackintosh as a main computer setup? I don't have cash to burn and really can't afford to screw up my system. Specs: CPU: 2600k i7 Mobo: ASrock extreme 4 gen 3 PCIEExpress: sapphire radeon 6970 RAM: 4gb (1600mhz) x 2 HD: 500gb 7200rpm sata If I'm missing any other important specs to mention, please tell me. (oh and I have a legit copy of the OS. Which one of the Mac versions is optimal, though?) Thank you!
