  1. FPS Display in WoW?! WoTLK

    No, I flashed mine and used in a real Mac Pro. No kexts. Gryphon rides aint demanding. That's 5-year old graphics. It's the spells that are.
  2. FPS Display in WoW?! WoTLK

    I have the 4890 too and while it's great, it doesnt run steady 155 fps with all settings maxed ^^maybe when you are looking at the ground lol. but drops to 20-40 in cities and 10 in aoe 25man raids.
  3. FPS Display in WoW?! WoTLK

    Cmd R? A simple solution is to check your key bindings, lol.
  4. Thanks! yes I am using a closed system, Corsair H50, only for CPU, but requires no maintenance and easy to install. I am just waiting for my DDR3 to arrive and I will have a shot at that guide
  5. maybe this: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=201024 ordered it myself, can't wait to try it out
  6. I am using a similiar setup, so your guide is really nice. Can you link to the exact lifehacker guide you used? Thanks Also what bios version should I use? My rig, soon finished
  7. The parts Mobo, Gigabyte EX58 UD5 Case, Fractal Design R2 Silver H50 mounted Mobo sand H50 mounted
  8. afaik, there is a bug with osx and gpu's with more then 1gb ram. they work fine, but some apps can't see the ram, and wont open. atleast that bug is in real mac pros. im building a watercooled i7 hackintosh atm, parts arrived today =D im using the corsair H50, much easier
  9. you can veryfy QE / CI support with my tool: just go QE_CI and Test button http://groths.se/atiflashingtool/atiflashingtool.zip works for nvidia card also (there is a bug, showing incorrect VRAM though)
  10. 4870 or 5770

    So you understand a 5000 series card will give a black display in OSX? Your 4770 has a driver, it just lacks some support. The 5xxx has NO driver, and will not run at all.
  11. 4870 or 5770

    So, how are you going to run a 5000 series card? There's no drivers for it.
  12. Thanks for your reply! no I don't use sound cards, raid cards, firewire ports at all! Mainly I game WoW, write documents, program in Xcode, Photoshop and that's about it. But If my hackintosh would to crasch during some important image editing or document unsaved... I would wish I had gone for the Mac Pro. But it seems that once you get the kexts for all devices installed, there is no more trouble? Also, wireless cards, which one should I get?
  13. I have a Mac Pro 1,1 atm but thinking of upgrading. A new Q1 mac pro would be sweet but at an insane price. I can sell my MP 1,1 2.66GHz and buy a i7 920 for the same money. Basically a free trade. I'm seeing the 920 rigs getting 12 000 in Xbench vs my MP's 5500. Is it worth it? I would go for a Gigabyte EX58 UD5 rig. Can it really compare to my MP in stability? Thanks!
  14. I'm thinking about ditching my Mac Pro 2006, specs: Two Dual Core Xeons @ 2.66GHz 8GB ECC DDR2 667MHz In favor of an i7 hackintosh: Intel i7 Quad 920 2.66GHz 6GB DDR3 1600MHz I would get the Gigabyte X58 UD5 motherboard since it seems pretty straightforward and not many hiccups. I would move my GPU (flashed 4890) and SSD from my Mac Pro to this new build. I would probably be able to sell my Mac for almost the price of this build. I would have to pay ~300$ extra. So 300$ for this upgrade. Is it worth it? Could I overclock my 920 to, let's say, 4GHz? on air? When up and running, can the stability of this Hackintosh be close to my Mac Pro? Thanks.
