Topics I've Started

My first hackintosh!

11 December 2011 - 11:00 PM

Hi everyone!

Im building my own desktop and i would like to first have some feedback on the hardware and later some good help with the whole OS X instalation thing...

This is my configuration:

GIGABYTE Z68XP-UD3P REV. B3


CPU INTEL 1155 I5 2500K 3.30GHZ 6MB BOX

CORSAIR TX-650W V2 (Can i use the XFX PRO 550W CORE instead?)

CORSAIR PC3-12800 1600MHZ 4GB VENGEANCE CL9 (2X2GB) DDR3 (later i will add a new 4GB pair to make a total 8GB)

BITFENIX SURVIVOR (its just the case, so it doesnt really matter here...)

CORSAIR SSD 120GB FORCE SERIES 3 SATA III

SONY OPTIARC AD-7280S BLACK BULK (How about the Pioneer drives, do they work okay? I would prefer to have a Pioneer...)

XFX RADEON HD6870 XXX EDITION 1GB GDDR5 PCI-E

WIFI CARD (???)



As for the peripherals, i am thinking of an AOC LED E2343F2 HDMI and the Microsoft (lol) Arc keyboard. Im guessing this keyboard will have some trouble workin on OS X, no? The mouse will be USB (Steelseries Kinzu Optical) so i believe theres no trouble there.

Please help me on this one, i need to buy all this before new year.
(prices are going higher next year...)

PCI-E Wireless Card - which one to buy?

11 December 2011 - 10:47 PM

I need to buy a pci-e for a hackintosh, it seems the recomended ones are from atheros and broadcom. But its hard to find those in Portugal. So can i get one from such brands such as TP Link, Asus, D-link, Netgear, SMC, Conceptronic and such? I would also favor any card with no external antennas...
The OS X version will be 10.6.x or 10.7.
