Hey!

I´m currently modding a G4 case and am mostly finished!
As it is a hobby of mine and it should not cost too much I´ll use some hardware which lays around here! :)

I already have:

- The modded G4 case
- 1TB WD Caviar Green
- 500W powersupply
- Geforce 9500GT (worked fine in my amd hackintosh)

I am unsure about the motherboard as its a budget build I just want to use the i3 3225 and need a mATX formfactor motherboard.
So far I´m interest in Gigabyte GA-Q77M-D2H which has the ability of natural speedstepping and the Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3P which is a low budget board as far as I know! I know these are both boards from customac but I was interested in the Q77 before :D

I recently found out that many people have problems with 10.8.2 and the B75 with KPs and lagging audio and the Q77 is mentioned as businessline, so I thought I just ask for your opinion/advice if there are other nice mATX boards around 120€ maximum that are worth the price for a lowbudget hackintosh :)


Thanks!

I wish that I could give you some personal experience about either of those boards, but I have an ASRock z77 Extreme-4m - and I also use ML in a VirtualMachine, not native.

With regards to a list of what works and what doesn't with ML and specific boards, a great place to start would be the wiki. A lot of people update that site daily with what they have gotten working, and what still causes problems, and what doesn't work at all.

Thanks for reply! The wiki is cool, but sadly there is no motherboard I´m looking for :)
