More accurately, I'm converting my old PC to a Hackintosh. I'm mainly going to be using it for music editing and graphic design work, so it doesn't need to be a powerhouse, it just needs to run OSX competently. I'm trying to do this as absolutely inexpensively as possible, so I'm going to use my existing case, power supply, DVD-RW, hard drive, and wireless adapter. Here are the components I'm updating:


Mobo:Intel BOXDG31PR LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard $64.99


Processor: Intel Pentium E2180 Allendale 2.0GHz 1MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor $69.99


Memory: CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel $49.99 - $30 MIR


Video card: BIOSTAR V8402GL26 GeForce 8400 GS 256MB 64-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 $29.99 - $10 MIR


With shipping, my total comes to $226.98. After MIRs, I'm sitting at $186.98. I've checked out all my components as best as possible on the wiki, but just wanted to see if everyone thought I made good decisions or should make any changes before I send the order through in a couple days.
