Hardware build - i975 + x1800xt/x1900xt

I'm looking at building a new pc, really want it to be hackintosh compatible :pirate2: . I have OSX on my laptop so I think it's time to get it running fully with opengl etc on my desktop (can't atm due to GF6800).


I'm not sure which graphics card to get atm. The X1800XT is at a similar price to the X1900XT. I've seen mixed reviews/reports about these cards, I also noticed they are listed as working on the wiki but there's not much info. I am guessing the X1900XT 'should' be supported as they are selling them with/for Mac Pro's.


If anyone with a x1900xt/xtx or a x1800xt could post their findings, I would appreciate it :).


I'm not sure about the rest of the system but I'm guessing a i965 mobo + core2duo should be supported quite well and for sound I might get a cheapo (OSX Compliant) USB soundcard.


Hopefully someone can help me out :)

This is what I'm looking at as a build so far:


Asus P5W DH Deluxe WiFi (ich7+lan seems to work on OSX)

Intel Core 2 DUO E6400 (for overclock - higher multi than e6300)

2GB 6400-C4

Connect3D ATI Radeon X1900 XT 256MB(I'm hoping this will be ok)

LG GSA-H10NBAL DVD±RW (Not sure if this is supported)
