  1. Direct X for MacOSX

    Hey.. Yes you can run DirectX 9 and 10 inside mac and play games.. I have MackBook Pro 2.5Ghz 500MG of video card and Vmware with a windows XP installed as a guest.. I can play Winning Eleven 2009 perfectly in mac but not with highest graphic level. I also did the same thing with my old hackintosh.. I played windows games inside mac using Vmware fusion 2 and parallels 3 and 4.. ----------- You can Run directx inside mac by using windows as a guest or crossover.

  5. 2nd 4870X2 For My HACKINTOSH!

    Hello.. Apple will support ATi RADEON HD 4870X2 in the next version of mac.. 10.5.7 When I heard the news I jumped to the store buying another 533$ card !! If the news are not true I'm giving up the mac for this computer & using it only with my old ugly 8600GT!!

  7. SOS: i7 extreme with Ati Radeon 4870 X2 HACKINTOSH

    When I bought the video card I thought it is like a memory cards.. I can add more memory later.. I told my self.. If 2GB is not enough I'll add another card to make it 4GB.. It's a common mistake treating Graphics cards as RAM Memory cards.. (ADD MORE GET MORE). 1GB is not enough when using virtual machines.. multi OSs.. ( I Usually use mac with 3 XPs.. one for office uses.. one for internet and one for games.. PES2009 is playable perfectly via VM ).

    Thanks for help.. I really appreciate it.. I'm wondering if I buy another 4870 but this time 2GB not X2.. the one you show me.. http://www.sapphiretech.com/us/products/pr...d=296&grp=3 and use it with crossfire Ill get 2GB isn't it? Do I get a better performance? or it will lower the performance because the second card is only ONE GBU? I'll check these coolers.. I did do a quick research and I found that the fastest computer, as C-Net reviewed, is one with i7 Extreme and 3 SLI overclocked.. -> Alienware ALX X58 High Performance Gaming Desktop Computer: http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/alienware...p;tag=mncol;lst http://review.zdnet.com/product/desktops/a...mputer/33519511 http://www.alienware.com/customize/alx-x58...ode=SKU-DEFAULT Also, Falcon Northwest Mach V (Intel Core i7-965 Extreme Edition): http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/falcon-no...l?tag=mncol;txt So.. I did not do things irrationally.. I made my decision after a lot of thinking. Keep it ALIVE!!
  9. Intel i7 Extreme 3.2Ghz Inside my NEW Hackintosh

    idSoftware™.. Tony Stark.. Thanks to you!! There is a topic about 4870, not 4870 X2, and can not be applied for this card.. I tried the instructions but no luck.. No QE OR 2GB.. floschman told me here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...t=#entry1132439 That I can not take any advantage of the 2nd GB VRAM with any OS saying that I have 1 useable GB of VRAM and that the same data will be stored in both GBs. I hope that is not true.. It is temporary until ATi updates the software..
  10. SOS: i7 extreme with Ati Radeon 4870 X2 HACKINTOSH

    Hey Merix.. I tried this before posting but when I reached the 5th step the mac couldn't boot.. I changed the kernel and it booted without any graphics improvement. I'll keep trying.. Maybe I did something wrong. NO.. NO.. NOOOOO Don't Write that Why did they do that, putting 2GB and not letting us take advantage of? When I tried a game, GTA IV inside windows, I saw that the Vram is only 1GB but I thought Ati company will update and correct that later telling such games that we have 2GB Graphic Card here.. The 2GB (besides the DDR5 thing) is the reason of why I didn't buy an nVidia card.. 295.. etc I'm still hoping that Ati will update the card's software and turn back the missing GB.. You are right.. I will overlock it later.. (even that it is very fast as it is).. I did not buy a cooling system yet.. Any suggestions? (the regular fan of i7 extreme is really cool.. transparent wings.. blue lights.. a switch for higher Extreme usage..)

    Hey Merix.. How did you fix the resolution? I could not make it over 1024X768.. Embio.. You are right.. mac does not support crossfire technology but I hope some one can fix this issue. MacPro Board does not support it but Ex-58-Extreme support it (the CF T). Apple Macs: "Multiple graphics card configurations available with two, three, or four NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 cards.." not crossfire tech. It is all about the software..
  12. I could not make the audio work with GIGABYTE GA EX58-Extreme.. Is the topic apply to this board or should I use another method?
  13. I need to make my QE work with the 2GB Vram
  14. SOS: i7 extreme with Ati Radeon 4870 X2 HACKINTOSH

    Hey.. My Hackintosh is running with i7 extreme 3.2Ghz But the Graphics card is not working yet.. I'm thinking of using crossfire with 2 cards of 4870 X2 but I couldn't make the single one work for me.. SOME PARTS OF MY HACKINTOSH : - CPU: Intel i7 Extreme 965 . - Motherboard: Gigabyte EX58-Extreme. - Memory Model: OCZ3G1600LV6GK it's 3x2GB (I'll make it 24GB if I make the 6GB work as expected, and if I find 4GB single cards). - Power supply: COOLMAX Green Power 950 Watt.. - Graphics Card: ATi Radeon HD 4870 X2 (Adding the second card soon if the first one work!).
  15. Hello.. Greetings.. Two weeks ago I bought the parts of my next year computer, here are the parts: - CPU: Intel i7 Extreme 965 ( 3.2Ghz of course ). - Motherboard: Gigabyte EX58-Extreme. - Memory Model: OCZ3G1600LV6GK (it's 3x2GB). - Power supply: COOLMAX Green Power 950 Watt - Graphics Card: ATi Radeon HD 4870 X2 ---------- I'm using an old LITEON DVD burner.. ( I'm not sure of the benefit of Blue Ray Burner.. I can transfer my files using a USB 128GB Stick.. playing movies using PS3... I don't think that Blue Ray is a must). I'm also using an old 1TB Western Digital HD .. I could not find an SSD with a respectable storage capacity. ---------- MY TESTS: I used Mac 10.5.6 Darwin Boot with different Kernels... Voodoo Kernel did not work for me.. I was not sure of the Working ones (I think ToS Kernel.. a Kernel called "sleep kernel").. Anyway.. I could not make Realtek ALC889A work even That I have its driver.. (working on it). The Graphics card is not working fully.. no QE.. no 2GB.. When I use several kernels.. once the cpu is 4ghz & once it is 3.33ghz .. the ram is mostly 400mhz.. sometimes the system profiles shows me that I have 7 cores or 4 in different occasions.. BY THE WAY.. EVEN VISTA 64bit SHOWS THAT I HAVE 8 CORE PROCESSOR!! I'm doing more tests .. hopping that I can make it work as my old Hackintosh..
