But then i think what if it don't go to plan, if something goes wrong. £800+ is alot to spend on something that you might have alot of trouble with. The main plan is to have Mac OS - Home Theatre (Plex/iTunes Hub-Media/eyetv), some video editing and general Mac stuff. Windows - Just mostly gaming E.g., Battlefield 3, Fallout, etc.


Powerful Hackintosh must be worth it yer?

Looks like a good build, just make sure your video card will be supported. I didn't notice a Motherboard?


ASUS P8P67 Pro Rev. 3.1 I have this motherboard and everything works natively. There are plenty of intel based motherboards that work fine with osx86. So just do some research and obtain a legal copy of Lion and plunge in. Regardless of having a hackintosh or not, your build will be a great computer. Only thing I suggest is upgrade your RAM to 8 GB.
