Bah, im happy with my Intel D975XBX, its Conroe compatible too and is a high performance board.

 

One thing to note is that the new G965 board ( i think thats what its called) will feature intels new X300 graphics or something like that.

Good news, although it is a pretty expensive mobo. Onboard LAN, sound etc. working under OSX86?

I will keep an eye on the Asus P5W DH mobo, which also features the OSX86 supported ICH7R southbridge.

According to the HCL the Marvell 88E8053 Gigabit LAN Controller and (after some Kext-editing) the Realtek ALC882M High Definition Audio 8-channel CODEC should also work. A bit overloaded and pricy it is, but this mobo or preferably a downscaled less costly version thereof will probably form the basis of my hackintosh project.

ok thanks stainboy.... im counting on the fact that Apple will be using this board in the new Mac Pro towers. Although that will suck if i cant use a dvd drive to install OSX in the meantime.

Well i did some searching around on the net and found this

 

ICH8 will also remove support for some aging technologies such as PATA in favor of SATA. While the current ICH7 integrates 4 SATA ports, ICH8 will come with 6 on the desktop platform. PATA support will be completely removed from the desktop chipset version and only be available in the mobile ICH8.
