Built a PC, now need it to do Hackintosh duty Tags: New Build Systems Last response: April 14, 2010 12:59 AM in Systems Share kuni April 13, 2010 10:50:57 PM So, I built the following system a few months ago and love it: i7 860 P7P55d mobo Sapphire 5770 8gb 1600 ram plenty of storage Samsung SH-s223l dvd GIGABYTE GN-WP01GS wireless 850w psu Rosewill RKM-800rf wireless keyboard/mouse It's running Windows 7 Home 64-bit and kicking the required ass, but I can't wait for the new Mac Pros, nor do I want to pay for one when I have a perfectly great beast at home. So, I know that the 5770 is not-OS X friendly (right?), so what should I swap it for? And is there anything else I need to know about from a compatibility standpoint? Thanks!

Sure it's a cool project to do, but not worth swapping anything out to get it to work. kuni April 13, 2010 10:55:12 PM Well, my other Mac is dying and can't afford the upgrade I want.

At any case, you'll probably have a better chance with an nVidia card that is currently available on Macs (ie GTS250,etc). kbits April 14, 2010 12:59:19 AM Yah all 9x00gt series, gts250, and most gtx2xx are usually very good picks. Depend on your budget. The 9800gt is by far my favorite in term of balance / cost. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
