Hi all, i've been browsing these forums for while but this is my first post,
I'm very interested in building an dual boot OSx86 system, but there are just a couple of things i need to know before i get started. Firstly, how stable is the OS on an x86 platform? I gather that this depends on the hardware but is it possible to get a system working perfectly? As well as it would if it were on the PowerPC hardware?
I found this excellent howto at http://osx86.theplaceforitall.com/howto/ and I was wondering whether this would provide a perfectly working system, crash free and able to run all compatible software including professional and resource hungry graphics apps.
Right now i'm at odds to whether I should buy/build a system with mac hardware, or run osx on a PC. Performance wise am I right in thinking that a good installation of OSx86 will run better because of the increased processing power? Or will hardware issues hold it back to sub G5 performance?
Does anyone have any experience/advice about how this setup run:
ASRock 775Dual-915GL Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel Pentium 4 630 3 Ghz Socket 775 800Mhz 2mb
120gb SATA HD
NEC 3550a DVD-RW
Usb graphics tablet
I dont mean to be fastidious, but I'd rather be safe than sorry when making an investment like this, and I'm sure someone here will have had some valuable experience with these components.
Thanks in advance.
