i5 Build New to Hackintosh


1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

This is my first PC build, switching over from Mac due to the ridiculous pricing of Mac hardware. However, I still need the apple OSX because I prefer it for video editing, which is where this becomes more complex. I will be running Windows 7, which I already have a copy of, and will use it mostly for gaming. I've picked some parts, but am still confused on others, here are the ones I've picked-


Overall Budget: $750-ish

I have a monitor, Resolution 1440x900


Processor: i3 530/540 or i5 750/760 if i can get a good deal on the i5.


Graphics Card: EVGA GTX 460 768mb or 1GB


Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Computer Case


HDD: Hitachi 1TB



Not sure on power supply (how much I need) or RAM, MOBO, etc.


The biggest problem is the GTX 460 is incompatible with Hackintosh, so I was wondering if there was a way to have two graphics cards, The GTX 460 and another cheap card, that will be good enough for video editing and be compatible with Hackintosh, so I can switch between the two? If I can't, i'll probably go with the GTX 260.


Again I'm completely new to building, any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.
