Mountain Lion on custom built PC


1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.


Recently I've been interested in trying out and using Mac OS X.

However, neither my PC's nor my laptop's hardware allow for a Hackintosh installation.


Fortunately, I will be buying a new custom built PC soon and I will try to install Windows 7, Mountain Lion and Xubuntu on it.

I don't have many options as you cannot find many pieces of hardware over here, however using guide found on hackintosh.com, I think I have found the optimal PC I can build with it.


Here it is:




Fazn-A18 Piano Black - Midi (A1008)


Power Supply


Turbo-X-650W Value Series




Intel-Core i5 3570K (s 1155 , 3.4 GHz , 6 MB)




Xigmatek-Gaia SD1283 Heatpipe Cooler 120mm (Intel 775, 1156, 1366 & AMD AM2/AM3)




Gigabyte-Z77MX-D3H (s 1155 , Z77 , DDR3 , HDMI)




Corsair-Vengeance 8GB Quad 1600 C9


Hard Drive


Seagate-Barracuda 1TB HDD 3.5" (64MB Cache, 7200RPM, Sata 6Gb/s)


Graphics Card


MSI-GT 640 (PCI Express 16 ,2 GB GDDR3)


DVD Reader


Samsung-DVD-RW SH-222BB Sata Black Bulk


I was wondering if this PC would be capable of running Mountain Lion...

Also, this is my first attempt at a Hackintosh system, so I have to ask that:

Will I be able to access networks through ethernet cables fine, or is it mandatory to get a WiFi adapter card to?


Thanks for your help,
