Gaming isn't an issue in Snow Leopard for me I can play games out for mac fine, but to play the latest and greatest you need Win 7 a DX11 card and a PS3. :)

Well.. I'm back to OSX. For 3 different reasons:

1) Steam will be released for Mac next month and all the games I already have will be there on OSX for no extra $$$! \o/ (most of the games I was used to play on pc were Staem games)
2) I bought a PS3 :)
3) Besides the PS3, I'm almost not playing anything. Just using the pc to navigate on the internet, download movies and series and recording a DVD from time to time (wich also may decrease since now I use the PS3 as media server - btw, the program that allows me to do that is java-based so it runs completely identical on Windows or Mac).

Another good reason is that I managed to run my machine Vanilla again so I'd say Windows NOW is optional in my home (finally!).

Hey JaS, howzit? Are you 100% content with your Asus P6T setup from your sig/ would you recommend it without any hesitation? And, on a scale from 0 - 10 (10 = cutting edge high end), where approximately would you place your setup?

Thanks a lot,
Bux (ex. BugsB.)

PS: remembering the good-ole days with your excellent releases, and lots of fun, yeah :D !

Hey Bugs :( yeah man its been a while lol. I remember those days ... great times we had bro.

Yes, I can say I am 100% content with this setup, on a scale of 1 to 10 I would say its a 9. I have a hd 5770 waiting in the wings lol , then its a 10 !
I get 12000+ in geekbench 64 bit and am very happy with the way this handles everything from playing games in os x to encoding videos and anything else in between.

If you want some advice about this setup you can find me over on irc.osx86.hu in #RadeonHD , #Snowleopard , #Hackint0sh , #Asus and also on moofspeak in #osx86

great JaS thanks for the feedback. A musician friend of mine is looking for a higher-end h'tosh combo and this could be it. I forwarded your comment to him + the link to FleeBailey's blog with the download to p6tpack.zip and the Install Guide for Snow Leopard on a P6T (non deluxe) here in the forum :P

I'm hoping I don't get this when I install it, I'm looking to get a decent music production thing going on...

I know this thread is like MEGA MEGA old ... however if I could convince our original poster to try my setup I am quite certain he will be very pleased with the results under OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion ... unless he really gave up: http://www.mlosx86.c...ur-mac-pro.html

I will probably just buy a real mac when I can afford it. I'm a little tired of playing catch the Apple, but I have nothing but love for the hackintosh scene. At this point, you can create a very powerful hackintosh which is rock solid stability for thousands less than a mac pro.

I too like to game and it is really disappointing that Apple has such a pitiful gaming experience. None of the major games are for OS X. I don't know why because I'm not a programmer, but I know it sucks because as another commenter said (correctly) OS X is better for every single other things outside of gaming. I may just go to consoles and stop PC gaming altogether. That is how much I like OS X. I'll just use my computer for work and internet and leave the games on the console. I don't hate MSFT, but their software is just ugly

And buggy as hell. My PC is mainly used by a young friend for gaming, and it needs constant maintenance.

As to myself, basically I play only chess and, occasionally, car racing. Decent chess games for Mac are very expensive, so I play Windows chess games either under CrossOver or in Parallels.
The only car racing game for Mac seems to be Real Racing 2, but it doesn't even start on my MacBook Pro, early 2011.

I lost my OS X install some how using MacDrive in Windows 7. I get the blue screen of death on Windows also from time to time. OS X runs without issue and its just so stable. If I didn't play Crysis and Call of Duty, there would be no need to use Windows. I wonder with Nvidia introducing the GRID Technology perhaps an average Mac can game just like a PC with top end graphics. IMO tech moving really fast. The effort made by this forum to get your Hackintosh to an enjoyable experiance is amazing if you put in your hours learning here at insanelymac.com. At this point in time I'm far from selling my rig or jumping ship. CES is happening here in the USA where I live and its exciting to watch the bell curve of tech increase so quickly. STRAIGHT UP
