  1. I never got that far. My audio didn't work so I just went with a USB option, the TASCAM US-122mkII. Works great. If anyone has questions about my setup you will have to PM me because I haven't had time to check this forum out to much lately. I followed this guide pretty much: http://osx86.net/f57/guide-evga-x58-snow-l...d-10-6-2-t3854/ and I used the following for some references: http://forum.voodooprojects.org/index.php/...q5ffd1j5emm0rqe and this: http://aquamac.proboards.com/index.cgi?act...&thread=509 and this: http://www.kexts.com/view/91-efi_studio..html
  2. Ok, got everything working except the audio Classified (E760) 10.6.3.
  3. To preface, I am a single Dad, 2 kids and my own business that I want use OSx with for video editing. So I'm not lazy but my reading time is down to a minimum, lol. I have the EVGA X58 Classified E760 Intel Core i7 920, Revision D0, OC'd in bios to 3.8ghz 12.0GB Triple-Channel DDR3 @ 738MHz 8-8-8-24 GeForce 8800 GTX AMCC 9650SE-4LPML SATA II Raid Card, 3TB Raid 5 HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GH22LS30 ATA Device PLEXTOR DVDR PX-716A wireless keyboard and mouse. 1st question I have is would it be better to use the Kalyway or the retail OSx snow leopard disc? I have access to both and even though you mention Kalyway I thought you might have an update on this opinion.
  4. OKay I've seen this question in this thread but it never got an answer and I am wondering about it too. The huge difference in RAM prices in the FBDIMM 800MHz CL5's: Mushkin PC2-6400 4GB 2X2GB DDR2-800 $139 Kingston 4GB 800MHZ FBDIMM KIT (2x2GB) $187 Apple 4GB Kit $191 Apple Corsair 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 667 $230 Whats the difference? Will they all work? Now could I use any of these in my build with the TeamScream mobo: Tempest i5000XT
  5. I am looking at using a Hakin Pro 17". There is a lot of choice out there faster then a MacBook Pro. I see a couple people using, anyone else with success with video editing getting eSata working, audio?
  6. Competitively priced? Hmmm, a 24" Imac is $2300 canadian. This is with only a dual core, only 2 gigs of mem, and only 1 500 gig drive and the vid card is only a 8800 gs, not a gt but just a gs. The Hackintosh is definitely the better way to go. That is as long as you can handle building your own system. If money is no object then by all means take a couple hundred out right now and put a match to it. Ok, that was a little harsh, if you are buying for a business and you are already super busy and can use the expenditure as a tax write off then for sure get a MAC or iMAC. Anyone have any dual quad setups that they have working?
