My first hackintosh!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

 

Im building my own desktop and i would like to first have some feedback on the hardware and later some good help with the whole OS X instalation thing...

 

This is my configuration:

 

GIGABYTE Z68XP-UD3P REV. B3

 

 

CPU INTEL 1155 I5 2500K 3.30GHZ 6MB BOX

 

CORSAIR TX-650W V2 (Can i use the XFX PRO 550W CORE instead?)

 

CORSAIR PC3-12800 1600MHZ 4GB VENGEANCE CL9 (2X2GB) DDR3 (later i will add a new 4GB pair to make a total 8GB)

 

BITFENIX SURVIVOR (its just the case, so it doesnt really matter here...)

 

CORSAIR SSD 120GB FORCE SERIES 3 SATA III

 

SONY OPTIARC AD-7280S BLACK BULK (How about the Pioneer drives, do they work okay? I would prefer to have a Pioneer...)

 

XFX RADEON HD6870 XXX EDITION 1GB GDDR5 PCI-E

 

WIFI CARD (???)

 

 

 

As for the peripherals, i am thinking of an AOC LED E2343F2 HDMI and the Microsoft (lol) Arc keyboard. Im guessing this keyboard will have some trouble workin on OS X, no? The mouse will be USB (Steelseries Kinzu Optical) so i believe theres no trouble there.

 

Please help me on this one, i need to buy all this before new year.

(prices are going higher next year...)

looks good, but why not ' 8 GB RAM ' or more ( 16 GB ) :dev: , it's cheap nowadays and Microsoft Arc keyboard is Mac kompatible, IMO.

Good to know the Arc is compatible! Id figures microsoft and apple still had some incompabilities...eheh.

Well im standing for the 4GB for now I guess, I will add other 4GB in the future. Or maybe I'll just add it now, I dont know, This desktop is gettin more expensive than i thought it would be!

I'm still wondering about the XFX PRO 550W, its cheaper than the Corsair. Does anyone know its it works good on OS X?

I have retouched my configuration and I believe this is the final one:

 

 

GIGABYTE Z68X-UD3H REV. B3

 

BITFENIX SURVIVOR

 

XFX PRO550W CORE EDITION

 

CPU INTEL 1155 I5 2500K 3.30GHZ 6MB BOX

 

CORSAIR PC3-12800 1600MHZ 8GB VENGEANCE CL9 (2X4GB) DDR3

 

XFX RADEON HD6870 XXX EDITION 1GB GDDR5 PCI-E

 

CORSAIR SSD 120GB FORCE SERIES 3 SATA III

 

SONY OPTIARC AD-7280S BLACK BULK

 

TP-LINK TL-WN851N PCI ADAPTER WIRELESS

 

It´s just under 1000$, i believe it´s about 900eur here.

Let me know if ya have any thought towards my first hackintosh. :)
