Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am attempting my first from scratch Hackintosh build after my friend and I made a PC he had laying around for ages with (semi decent hardware) run OS X and had a great deal of success with it, I now want to build one for myself because he is keeping that one and this is my rough Idea for a build. since I am a newbie at this I think posting here for feedback is a good idea. thanks in advance guys my build is as follows


Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H61M-USB3-B3 Intel MainBoard (B3 Stepping) - 2x DDR3, 4x Sata, USB3.0, LGA1155


Graphics: Gigabyte ATI RADEON 5770 1GB, DVI, HDMI Graphics Card


Processor: Intel CPU Core i5 2310, 2.90GHz, 6MB CACHE, LGA1155


Optical Drive: LG Blu-Ray/DVD/CD Burner (BH10LS30)


Hard Disk: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 7200RPM 32MB SATA3/2


RAM: Corsair DDR3 8GB PC-10600/1333 (2x XMS3 4GB) CMX8GX3M2A1333C9 Ram


I know posting the hard drive and RAM probably isn't necessary but it couldnt hurt the more you know about my build. thanks guys :)

since skimming through the wiki I have updated my desired build: as follows


Asus nVidia GT220 1GB SLIENT, DVI, HDMI, LP VERSION Graphics Card


Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R Intel Mainboard


Intel CPU Core i7 2600, 3.40GHz, 8MB CACHE


and the rest is the same as previous I think it will go smoothly but any other tips or suggestions would be much appreciated
