  1. Mountain Lion on custom built PC

    I guess I could order two HDD's/SSD's, it isn't really an issue Do you think that using a fourth partition for shared data between the three OSes is a good idea, btw?
  2. Hello everyone. Recently I've been interested in trying out and using Mac OS X. However, neither my PC's nor my laptop's hardware allow for a Hackintosh installation. Fortunately, I will be buying a new custom built PC soon and I will try to install Windows 7, Mountain Lion and Xubuntu on it. I don't have many options as you cannot find many pieces of hardware over here, however using guide found on hackintosh.com, I think I have found the optimal PC I can build with it. Here it is: Case Fazn-A18 Piano Black - Midi (A1008) Power Supply Turbo-X-650W Value Series CPU Intel-Core i5 3570K (s 1155 , 3.4 GHz , 6 MB) Cooler Xigmatek-Gaia SD1283 Heatpipe Cooler 120mm (Intel 775, 1156, 1366 & AMD AM2/AM3) Motherboard Gigabyte-Z77MX-D3H (s 1155 , Z77 , DDR3 , HDMI) RAM Corsair-Vengeance 8GB Quad 1600 C9 Hard Drive Seagate-Barracuda 1TB HDD 3.5" (64MB Cache, 7200RPM, Sata 6Gb/s) Graphics Card MSI-GT 640 (PCI Express 16 ,2 GB GDDR3) DVD Reader Samsung-DVD-RW SH-222BB Sata Black Bulk I was wondering if this PC would be capable of running Mountain Lion... Also, this is my first attempt at a Hackintosh system, so I have to ask that: Will I be able to access networks through ethernet cables fine, or is it mandatory to get a WiFi adapter card to? Thanks for your help, shamanas
