Custom Desktop Build

Recommended Posts

Okay So I'm building a Desktop Computer and I wanted to make sure that the parts I want will work with Mac OS X. I intend to have the system hexaboot (or at least triboot)


These are the parts I was thinking of using


Motherboard: http://www.compusa.com/applications/Search...mp;Sku=I69-2202

- Intel DP55WG Motherboard - Intel P55, Socket LGA1156, 8 Channel Audio, SATA


Processor: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Intel%26%23174...tract_desc=null

- Intel® - Core™ i7-950 Processor


Video card: http://www.compusa.com/applications/Search...p;Sku=E145-0469

- EVGA 01G-P3-1373-AR GeForce GTX 460 SuperClocked Video Card - 1024MB GDDR5, PCI-Express 2.0, Dual DVI, Mini HDMI, SLI, DirectX 11



- DDR3 8GB (maybe 16, depends on budget)


Hard Drive

- Undecided. I know I want 2TB of storage though. I'm still looking through the forums to find the best type of HD to use



So what do you think? Any suggestions and/or criticism on what I should use?
