New Setup

Hi Everyone

I'm farely new to Insanely Mac and have decided to construct my own Hackintosh.

At the moment this is the setup im looking at :


SUPERMICRO MBD-X7DAL-E-O Dual LGA 771 Intel 5000X ATX Server Motherboard


2x Intel Xeon E5405 Harpertown 2.0GHz 12MB L2 Cache LGA 771 80W Quad-Core Processor


XFX Nvidia GeForce 9800 GTX 512 MB


Antec P190 + 1200 Case


BigFoot Killer NIC 10/100/1000 400Mhz PCI Network Card


Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard


Logitech G7 Mouse


2x ASUS VW222U Black 22" LCD


Panasonic UJ-220 Blu-Ray Burner DVD±RW ROM Drive


Seagate 500GB Serial ATA SATA Hard Drive


Crucial 8GB DDR2 800MHz


And also little bits and pieces here and there.


I'v been looking into liquid cooling aswell just to ensure perfect temperature, because in the past all my computers have had serious heat problems.


I want to dual boot whatever version of Leopard I can get (most likely 10.5.2) and some version of Vista (havn't looked into it much)


So yeh, i have the money for it now and when I get some spare time after the HSC I will start buying parts and will probably make a full post on the whole build.


So any problems, bugs, suggestions, words of wisdom etc. for me?
