Is it true that UEFI motherboards are better and easier for setting up a hackintosh? I heard they work out of the box a lot more so than non-uefi mobo and you don't have to deal with as much problems.
 
Is that true? If so I need to get a UEFI mobo. 
 
Thanks!

AFAIK there is no difference. Compatibility of chipset/CPU/video card/sound card/LAN card does matter. UEFI or not it doesn't matter. The other thing is, that most modern motherboards/laptops are UEFI equipped.

UEFI is definitely the future, but all motherboards also have a compatibility mode (legacy bios) so you get both. Still, in usage they're both pretty much equal. Also, what "circle area" said :P

In future we will have only uefi bios, no more support for legacy, so...
