Hi

I just found a custom build pc on the net with these specs...

- Intel Celeron E3400 Dual Core 2.6ghz 800mhz
- 500gb 16mb Cache Serial ATA
- 2gb DDR3 1333 PC10660
- Motherboard - Asus P5G41C-M LX
- Nvida GT 8400GS
- Sony 24x SATA DVD/CD Combo

After some research I believe this to be a good set-up for an install of hackintosh using the Empire EFI methord. Just wanted to check with some people who know. Will this run 10.6 well?

Thanks
Olly ;)

I don't know about Empire EFI method....most of us recommend BUYING the retail Snow Leo disk for 30 bucks and installing it Vanilla.

ahh yes the Empire EFI method uses the real install disk. I definitely agree that you should at least support apple a little bit.

"And not to discourage you, but hackintosh stuff is hard. On the geek scale (of 1 to 10) if installing XP on a blank HD is a one and cracking a copy of Adobe Photoshop to keep it from activating itself is a 3 than most OSX86 stuff is an 8 or a 9 with some stuff (like dsdt hacking) something like an 25. There is really nothing as hard as hackintoshing in the Windows world."

With compatible hardware, one may have to spend dozens of hours
to get close to a fully functioning system. With incompatible hardware
it may obtain only 40% of the functionality as Windows (your cpu?).

I think your expectation might be like mine was when I started out, but
it's a geek hobby that requires good reading comprehension and Google.
