Ok so I know this is a newb question so bare with me please :D

I have been out of the game for a few years for sure, I remember the last build I used was one from 10.5, I can see lots have changed.
Well I just built a new rig, and was thinking of putting a build on a partition, however I cannot find any information on any build(s) I remember there used to be a topic that listed all the current build(s) and thier respected chipset type.. However I cannot find this information. I remember a few were
iAKTOS
iDeneb
etc
etc

I cant find any of the new ones out there, not even via my "source' to aquire.. So has something changed to aquire a build since I was last here or am I just stupid and am looking for the wrong thing ??

For those that are curious to the specs of the new rig there they are!

AMD FX 8120 3.1ghz 8 Core
Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3 system-board
AMD RD9x0 Chipset
AMD SB910/950 southbridge
AMD ATI Radeon HD 6850 video card
8gb DDR3


Any help would be appreated, Thanks!

These days we don't use distros...what's recommended is a retail installation. Buy a retail 10.6 disc. I have a 10.6 guide in my signature. :)

Once you have Snow running, with your CPU it is possible to run Lion via an experimental kernel. :)

^ this...

Even though there are/were distros to use for Snow Leopard, the ability to use retail discs is a big step forward...

scorpnet if you run into some snags on the installation, let me know...I am on an AMD quad core and just trying to iron out a few things before getting everything right on my system...

Only Lion comes from the App Store, not Snow. The only way you can get it on Windows is if you get OS X to work in VirtualBox/VMWare on Windows. :)
