Hey guys just looking for some advice or contribution as I always see people posting there systems and having got something wrong. I dont really feel like getting something wrong this time!


My current system -


Intel Core 2 Duo E4600

Gigabyte GA-G33M-S2L


4 GB Corsair XMS2


I had this machine already when I found out about hackintosh so I installed Leopard on this machine I successfully installed a few different distros found iPC to be the best I think and it ran sweet everything worked, I wanted snow leopard and never could get it installed after weeks of installs and researching I gave up and went back to windows :D


I have now decided to upgrade my system so I can run Snow Leopard properly.


My proposed hardware -


Intel I7 950 CPU

Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R rev 2 - (please note the A as there is a board the same name without A)

6GB XMS3 1600 Memory

NVIDIA 8600GTS < (can be upgraded if necessary)

NVIDIA 8500 GT < (also have one of these if its better suited)


I would really appreciate any input as I am very close to ordering these parts but dont want to muck it up.


Thanks a bunch in advance.
