Intel Hackintosh Configuration

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. This is my first time building a Hackintosh and I have no previous experience with configuring computers. My budget for a computer is $600 and I worked out a configuration for just over that at $613. So, here's the list:


Total: $613


Motherboard: Intel DG45ID - $99.99

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.93Ghz E7500 - $118.99

Memory: OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 - $97.88

GPU: nVidia GeForce 9800 GT 1GB - $99.99

Harddrive: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500 GB - $43.20

CD/DVD Burner: Sony Optiarc AD-7240S-0B 24X Dual Layer - $29.49

Case: COOLER MASTER Elite 360 - $39.99

Power Supply: Antec 550W Continuous Power - $59.99

Operating System: Mac OS X 10.6 - $23.48


Do you think that those are good choices for a nice deal? And there shouldn't be any compatibility issues, correct? Also, do you forsee any problems using the "no hacking required" installation method over at this Lifehacker tutorial?


Thanks for your time!
