  1. The new ATI 5xxx series cards do not use a pass through like the nVidia cards do. ATI says on their web site: Integrated HD audio controller Output protected high bit rate 7.1 channel surround sound over HDMI with no additional cables required Supports AC-3, AAC, Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio formats The 5770 card I have is from XFX and I do not even need a soundcard in the system the video card does it all
  2. Radeon HD 5750

    I read about building a hackintosh a while back and recently tried it out, so I am pretty new to this. I always wanted a Mac but they are to overpriced, so I thought I would give it a try with some of the old parts I had laying around while I am in the process of building my new rig. Asus P5W DH Deluxe Patriot 2GB DDR2-800 Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4GHz XFX HD-577A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB Seagate 120GB SATA HDD PLEXTOR 24X SATA DVD Writer PX-880SA Multi card reader Cooler Master Cosmos Kingwin 600w PSU Sony 37" LCD TV I used IPC 10.5.6 final - did not choose any kernels as it will install vanilla by default - the video drivers I choose the natit because of various ATI card compatibility - the chipset drivers needed are ichx sata drivers - the sound drivers needed are alc882 and under legacy drivers also choose alc882 address 0 - the ethernet drivers needed are the marvell yukon ones - the wifi wdrivers needed are realtek rtl8187/l - patched usb drivers - appleSMBIOS ToH patch The results were better than I expected - everything seemed to worked. If I used either the HDMI or the DVI ports on the 5770 I had no sound via the coax digital out on the P5w. I believe this is because that the 5770 has built in sound. I have not had time to try anything else out, hopefully later this week I will have a chance to mess around with it.
