  1. Hello everyone. A lof of time passed till my last hackintosh use. But few days ago my MBP died and I need a working machine. I've an old desktop with D975xbx2 mobo / xeon 3050 / GeForce 7300 GT. Was perfect 7 years ago =) when installing 10.5.6 which still works great and fast. But at the moment some programs won't work and I plan to install El Capitan. Is it possible on my config? And what is the best way? I've a BuildSmart bootloader now and os x 10.5.6. Sorry for noob questions, but a lot of years passed till last hackintosh use. Best wishes.

    Greatest Mac in History

    the best thing which Apple makes is OSX. the greates mac for me is G4 cube - there is no analogs in the world !! but it's not the best selling product - it's an uncommon product. i'll be glad to have modern model like old cube. also the best designed mac is a Job's lamp (iMac G4).
  4. bad axe i'm not an intel shiller, i'm just very pleased with my mobo

  6. take 2*1 gb of ram and 7300/7600GT 256 mb ddr3 video card - you'll get the maximum perfomance for your needs.
  7. mine cofig is the very close to real macs. if u wanna get maximum from hackintosh - take INTEL mobo D975xbx2 or D945gcl. Intel Bad Axe 2 c2d e6300/6400/6600 etc... xfx GeForece 7300 GT
  8. cheapest and most compatible mobo is INTEL D945GCL. everything is working 100%. and it have GMA 950 integrated graphics. also i recommend to go with Core 2 Duo e6300 CPU - it have all features needed. if u need cheaper model - so Pentium D920 - the minimum model with all features, inc. VT technology. but if just need to run - any Intel with SSE3 will do the job ! that's all about ram - for your choice, 1gb is enough.
  9. maybe a little outdated - but +1 for BAD AXE .... i've one - have no probs at all. but i use NI Audio Kontrol 1, so i even doesn't try integrated sound. and with DaemonES kernel - CPU speed is showing correctly.
  10. the cheapest way - is to buy the cheapest and most compatible VGA card. take XFX GeForce 7300 GT 256mb. i've one - and it's run great - just put natit_dual_v2 kext to extensions folder, doesn't even edit any kexts and both dvi are working with my ACD 23 and Nec 1560
  11. and again and again anyone can told me the main part in any computer ? i think it's the MOBO !! what you are want to build ?? - hackintosh ?? - so you have no choice with mobo for what getting not natively supported 965 chipset ?? also as not 100% compatible GigaByte mobo?? take INTEL BAD AXE ! OC'ing much better than gigabyte. and 100% compatible with OSX (975 chipset with ich7, network, usb, FW, as i know sound too - but i doesn't test it - i have external soundcard). i just recommend anyone who need HACKINTOSH to go with INTEL mobo. D975XBX[2] or D945GCL. no more mobos at the moment for perfect C2D hackintosh.
  12. mac pro case will be expensive, and need a @patch@ ) for correct install )) better go with lian-li case ! like 1200, or 1100 model. Lian-li makes great alu cases. i'm personally wish to have V1100 instead of mine Nexus Breeze.... (3 yr old already)
  13. Intel Bad Axe 2 C2D e6300/6400/6600 etc, or xeon 3040/3050/3060 // don't take e4300 - it havn't intel VT technology. XFX GeForce 7300 GT / 7600 GT 256mb is 100% compatible config for OSX.
  14. take BAD AXE =) mobo is the main thing in any machine. and if u wanna 100% compatibility - you have no choice - only Intel bad axe. better go with e6300/6400 cpu and overclock it little on this killer mobo and you'll get FASTER machine at all for the same money. here is my XBench results. and Geekbench results
