I put this topic here in CPU's because I THINK! that this is mostly CPU oriented. Right?

So basically I'm making a system. I want both Mac OS X and Windows 7 on the comp. Preferably one HDD but I have another 120GB (prefer to not use) So, I just need ya guys to be awesome enough to check out my parts below and tell me if it's compatible. Thanks so much guys! P.S. The graphics card isn't there, because I'm getting a GTX 6xx. (Not released just yet. Come on already!!!!) Thanks again.

Well its not quite CPU oriented but I will try to answer it.

You wont be able to install the official OS X release. Only the Hackintosh OS X.

BTW, your links are messed up. Try tinyurl.

Not quite the same thing but its close. The main difference would be that there is no closed hardware specs like with a normal Mac.

As for compatible, not 100% sure as I don't mess with Mac OS X but I know the nVidia GPU will be the best one since they have the best Unix/Linux drivers.

2550k does not work! Get the 2500k!What version of mac os are you looking to run? IMO the best version with no errors is Snow Leopard. Also I would not install them both on the same drive, because mac os is best on its own single drive. I personally have a hackintosh, you can check my config for it.

Currently the best hardware to run in a hackintosh are: i5-2500k, gigabyte z68x-ud3h-b3, and the radeon 6870.
