Prospective Hackintosh

Hi, I am looking into purchasing parts, but before I do I don't want to screw up and buy something that has no possibility of working.

 

This is the processor that I was looking into buying.

Here

If it will work then splendid, and that leads me into the next question, what motherboard should I get.

I was looking at this

 

If none of this will work then what is a comparable alternative?

There was nothing with this specific hardware and I didn't want to assume that it was the same as the UD3. I'm new to building a Hackintosh, not using a forum. I searched before I queried. I am not stupid.

 

No need to be rude, he was just trying to help

Really? Let's compare your MB with the MB from the guide.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813128375 Their MB

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...8-456-_-Product Your MB

 

What do we see?

  • Same chipset
  • Same CPU type socket type
  • Same south bridge
  • Same (more or less) memory type
  • Different Audio chipset
  • Slightly different LAN chipset

So ~70-80% identical MBs. And you want to tell me that the guide has absolutely nothing to do with your MB and CPU? :o

 

There would be some differences in DSDT and audio/lan drivers. Everything apart the above can be easily applied to your MB as well as to the MB in the guide.

 

I am not stupid
Nobody calls you that way. You should be bit smarter then it comes to OS X installation.

I'm sorry I didn't mean to upset anyone. Sometimes I feel like I have a social disorder when it comes to talking online.

 

I should explain my situation more. This is my first time building a computer as well. I know it all in theory however the only thing I've ever done was upgrade my windows xp computer. So I am not extremely knowledgeable on hardware.

 

Also I didn't say that it had nothing to do with the guide, but I read your post incorrectly as "Use the forum search [before you post on the board]." So I was incorrect on the implied meaning. Therefore when I said:

 

There was nothing with this specific hardware and I didn't want to assume that it was the same as the UD3.

 

I only meant that, since I am new to this, before I consulted the forums I didn't want to assume that those two were the same.

 

I really do apologize for the hostility I have created.

Oh, and thank you for clearing that up.
