Built a PC, now need it to do Hackintosh duty
Apr 13, 2010, 10:50 PM
So, I built the following system a few months ago and love it:
8gb 1600 ram
plenty of storage
Samsung SH-s223l dvd
GIGABYTE GN-WP01GS wireless
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?

WHY would you run OSX on a PC with this much power?!?!
Sure it's a cool project to do, but not worth swapping anything out to get it to work.

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).

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.
