Also, If you bought a new wireless card, or another NIC or some sound card etc... you should post it here too. Perhaps this question has been asked before but I am just curious of the situation at hand, now. It seems like many people make hardware decisions based on osx86 compatibility because so many people ask about compatible hardware in the forums when they are upgrading or buying a new pc.

I just wonder if many people bought Intel based machines (especailly 915G/954G) or replaced their parts with Intel chipsets/processors etc.. after the release of osx86, to be able to have a better osx86 experience.
I think we need to first esimate how many people are running OSx86 as their primary operating system. Given the size of the OSx86Project and the number of completed OSx86 torrent downloads, I think the number may be on the order of 10,000. I would estimate the somewhere near a third of them have bought Intel hardware to do so.

Personally I'm not even running Windows on any machine now... But I was a Mac person before. I've still spent less then I would have on a new mac, but in time I will buy a new Mac.

My first osx86 machine was a 2001-era Dell 8100 which ran it surprisingly well (still does!), but my brand new Sony laptop (VGN-T350P) was worthless so I bought me an "el cheapo" Compaq v4000 which does an amazing job with the OS.
The only reason I picked the Compaq above others was it was the cheapest, most compatible model I could find as of about two months ago. Worked out well!
My next computer? Probably a MBP (i'm getting close on the referral-thingie), but until then the Compaq does fine.

You must be like retardo, should have bought a New 915 with a Celeron, but I have a GF4 Ti 4600 AGP, which my pop wasnt willing to upgrade. I have tendency to screw up my comp .
I guess the next upgrade will be from my paycheck

But as there was no 64-bit version of Intel version of procesor, my choice was clear.
then i made a system with AMD64 2800+ (SSE2), with nForce3 chipset based.
But actually i liked its performance so much in Windows XP x64 edition that i was soon a fan of AMD.
But in early september 2005, i saw Mac OS X floating around, then i installed it but was disappointed to see that my system was at the low level of compatibility.
It was then i decided to go for a SSE3 based AMD(venice core system).
By that time, i had enough money to get a system with Asus SLI based motherboard and AMD64 3200= proc and a 6200 PCI-E card.
And this upgrade hardly costed me around Indian Rupee 11000(around $245 with exchange of my old AMD system i.e mobo proc and AGP card).
Now i think i made wise a decision by not going with Intel.
As intel heats up quickly than AMD nowadays.
By the way my system is Vista Compatible
Conclusion: A Happy AMD64 Mac OS X 10.4.6 user.

It has never seen windows, and hope never will :)

but now i sold it and waiting my new INTEL parts for the max. compatible OSX box.
i'm not an Intel / AMD fun, but i'm really MAC fan and without spend a lot of money i hope to get a fully working mac os system.

But I will buy me a MB pro, because I expect it to run games fast with XP. I don't care
what brand is on my CPU, as long as it is the winner. Personally I think AMD are less
gangsters than Intel but whatever
Gaming is the only right to exist for XP (and maybe Vista). The rest is simply lame
bloatware as we know it.
