Questions on Parts Compatibility and Dual Graphics Cards (4 monitors) on a New Build

Recommended Posts

I am starting my build of my first hackintosh. I have read through guide after guide as well as researched the builds of many others.


Currently this is what I'm looking at or have already purchased.


Intel Core i7-970 Gulftown 3.2GHz 12MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Six-Core (already purchased)


XFX HD-577X-ZMF3 Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 (need 2)

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 12GB (3 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333

Intel X25-M Mainstream 2.5" 160GB SATA II MLC Internal SSD (already purchased)




My questions are:


Are there any parts I should reconsider? I wan't the simplest installation I can get.


Should I be looking at these cards (they appear to be what a macpro uses) or something else. I will be running a 50" 1080p display as well as 3- 23"-24" 1080p displays.


My audio will be hooked up to my receiver so native audio via digital optical or hdmi would be needed.
