965BE and a 5770

I'm wanting to install OS X on a spare 160GB HDD that I have, but every thread I find on it for my hardware gets sidetracked or just dies.


I saw this thread: http://www.insanelym...age__mode__show

And I'm thinking of following it but I just wanted to get other people's opinions first. I am aware that this is only for 10.6.7 and lower, so that's why I'm asking here.


I'd really like to be running Mountain Lion, but if it's not yet possible then I suppose I can settle for 10.6/10.7,,

I also need Optical (SPDIF) output to be working. Again, if it's not possible than I can deal with it but it's what I use for my speakers, so.
