I've been out of the osx86 world for quite a while. It'll take me a bit to get back into the groove. Just wondering if, before I dive in, I should even waste my time.

I have a Geforce 660m GTX, Atheros AR9485wb-eg wireless card (I also have a WUSB54GC, which I know works). I'm not honestly sure what my audio card is. All Everest tells me is nVidia unknown, and VIA unknown.. I do have device IDs though.

Also has a 3rd gen i7 quad core.

So, will I be able to find any decent working kexts or should I not bother and wait for a while?

Thank you in advance!

Are you able to expand on the path you took to getting 10.8.2 (or newer) installed on the G75VW? I've been at it a week and can't even get to the install stage.
