I am getting parts to build a hackintosh. I want to run snow leopard, and I would like to know if this hardware will work for this hackintosh build, or if I will need new parts. The board I am getting is a Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H, a Intel core I5-2500k Quad core 3.3 GHz Processor with 6MB of cache. I also plan on getting a LG dvd burner and buying a snow leopard 10.6.3 retail installer disk. I have the links to the parts I'm getting on amazon. I will post them, but if I'm not suppose to post the links, I apologize in advance for that. 

 

 

Thanks for any help in advance too.  :D  :thumbsup_anim:

P.S. I am reusing a ATX computer case that I have for when my dad's mobo when to mobo heaven. I am also reusing a Dynex 520 watt psu(http://www.amazon.co...ex 520 watt psu). Also I would like to know if I can use the built in graphics on the mobo so i don't have to buy the video card because I can't afford one right now.  :(

 

Thanks for taking your time to read all of this (I know it's a lot) and any help will be appreciated in advance!  :D  :thumbsup_anim:

SL would be too old for the motherboard. You'd need newer OS X versions for this components IMO.

Yes I understand that. But my problem is that as it stands right now, I don't have access to another mac with snow leopard to create a uni-beast installer. So then my question is, what can I do? I don't really want to use a distro, because as for one, I'm sure these parts can run close to vanilla, and two, I don't want to pirate.
