In Topic: Back to the Hackintosh

16 December 2012 - 10:23 PM

Yea my laptop now has 6GB and I'm doing just fine, I don't do a whole lot of video editing yet. I mainly want a hackintosh for iweb, iphoto and a few other apps. I know what you mean about the HD4000, I've been confined to gaming on my laptop with a HD3000 for the past year. It plays games like sims 3 at 40-50FPS on medium settings at native res and does battlefield 3 around 20 and low settings and low res. But other than that its only good for 720P HD videos, 1080P heats the system up a bit. But I want to have a system that I won't have to upgrade for at least a year or two without feeling like its slow or like I have with this laptop.

Thanks for the response. I had just had that idea today although snow leopard is really slow in a VM environment on my current laptop but I'm sure it will run a bit better on the desktop. Thanks!

Lol I didn't see the last part of what you posted till after I posted above, Anyway yeah I've heard and have seen that Gigabyte boards work for the most part Out of the box with OS X. I may not go the Windows 8 route, I've grown tired of it the past month or two that I've had it as my primary OS. It works but it can be a little annoying at times. I think I'll be sticking to Windows 7 on my desktop hackintosh build. How does your system do with 8 gigs of ram? I remember a few years back it felt like I needed more than 4GB of ram for leopard on my last desktop. Lol another question I have is about the processor, not specifically about OS X and it but I have a Core i5 2500M 2.40-3.0GHZ in this laptop with 6GB of ram and sometimes it feels very slow but then again that could be caused by the Intel 3000 graphics that this thing is stuck with, how does the Ivy bridge i5 do?

Thanks again!
