I'm quite to the building a hackintosh from scratch. I tried installing Mac Os X from a custom computer I made a 8 months ago and I kept running into problems, espically when I tried downloading the 10.6.6 update. So I decided to just reinstall windows 7 again and wanted to build another computer again that would be able to run it without having to worry about problems with updates up to the recent 10.6.6 update to maybe when Lion comes out this summer. I just want your guys opinion on or what you think I should change in this build so I could be able to do adobe work on my mac, and be able to play games using either parallels or bootcamp on windows. Oh yeah and if my build will show all the memory I have installed instead of being partially on there.

-Rosewill Blackbone Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
-ASUS Sabertooth X58 LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

It really depends. Check the OSx86 project wiki for information on hardware. They have massive lists of tested parts; which ones work and which don't. They also ahve some help guides.
