I've been wanting to try this for a while now but I wanted to wait a bit for the scene to settle down. I've come up with a preliminary configuration for a possible build, but I wanted to run it through you guys since I imagine you have more experience with this. I would appreciate any input.
Here is what's included (only listing the relevant parts):
- GIGABYTE GA-P55A-UD3 LGA 1156 Intel P55
- Intel Core i5-650 Clarkdale 3.2GHz LGA 1156 73W
- SAPPHIRE 100283-3L Radeon HD 5770 1GB
I usually go for AMD because it's cheaper for me, but I wanted to try to choose something that would presumably give me the least problems when going for a hackintosh build, so I went with what is found in current Mac products.
So what do you think? Should be this be okay? Primarily, will sound, networking, and 3D acceleration work?
Also, I will absolutely need to be running Windows 7 on this computer as well. Would this be possible? Would it be as simple as going through bootcamp? Should I keep the operating systems on separate drives? Can they be on the same drive? Is there any information you could point me towards with regards to this?
Since this will be a new computer, I can install whichever operating system first, so if it's easier to do it by installing OS X first, I can do that.
