  1. I'll be watching your thread closely as I am thinking of getting about the same system. Keep up the pictures and the good work! How heavy was the parcel that came in to your house?

    Help with my setup

    Thanks for the reply Mackilroy, I may throw in a good fan and give a try at overlocking then

    Help with my setup

    Thanks for the welcome Freaky Chokra! I changed the hard drive and added one like you said. I didn't buy it yet but I will soon.. can't wait! @hangten, I am a bit wary of overclocking, would it shorten the cpu life?
  4. I shamefully wrote quick replies to other thread in order to be able to post. I will not do it again promise! I am pretty new to hackintosh, and I've been considering for a while and I think I am going to make the move in the next few weeks. I had this question on hackint0sh forums but I didn't get any replies yet so I am hoping this forums can help me. I am from Australia and everything over there is expensive (2900usd for a imac i7 with standard 4gb ram) so I decided to try to build a hackintosh. My budget is about $1500 and the computer will be used for heavy photoshop and aperture work. Here is what I am considering ordering from newegg via freight forwarding: DVD: Cheap DVD Burner BOX: XCLIO Windtunnel ATX Full Tower Computer Case HD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST31500341AS 1.5TB 7200 RPM SATA VIDEO: EVGA GeForce 9800 gtx 512mb POWER SUPPLY: CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W Power Supply MISC: SIIG 3-Port FireWire PCI Express Card RAM: CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 CPU: Intel Core i7-930 Bloomfield 2.8GHz MOBO: Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 Am I missing anything? Is it overkill with what I am planning to do? (especially with the video card) Would I be better off with 1600 ram instead of 1333? Is the 930 better than 920 or is there a lot of trouble making it work? I plan to use it with a 27" Dell U2711 IPS screen, would it work? Would the card be able to handle 2 of them? I apologize for all the questions Thanks for reading! -G
  5. I've read on another forum: stick an apple logo on your hackintosh

    I also would get my a$$ handed, but I bet you would also want a piece of me! I am so bad at these games
  9. Thanks, I have also been wondering the same thing, another new thing to I learn
