Please remember that you are in a public forum, a bit of courtesy is always welcome.

It's always nice to start by saying "Hi" or "Hello" before asking a question or seeking help. Also a "thank you" would be appreciated, especially if the help you get is effective.



You have to be a bit more specific about this.
I do not know what a

Gigabyte GA-H61N-D2V

has onboard.
Also, what is a GT210? My guess would be a nVidia graphics card, but i'm not sure.
Is the processor a Pentium 4?

When asking questions like this, please give sufficient information.

Thank you.

Hi, sorry for a late responce, not sure about an actuality of the answer.


I considered this mobo for my next "budget" mac-mini, but look closely the spec - it have no PCIx slot - there is only PCI. So you can`t use GT210 PCIx video.

This was a bad news - good news is that this mobo support IvyBridge processors, i.e. you can replace G550 to i3 3225 with HD4000 video.


Here was successful experiences (not mine, go google )to instal ML on GA-H61N-D2V+ i3 3225.

Also get the point for other legacy elements on this board:

- no USB 3.0 support

- no SATA 3.0

- no HDMI

LPT, COM port, PS\2 - do you want need it in you perfect mac-micro ?

Actually this is the cause this mobo is so cheap.

However, there is no claim for performance issues. may be h61n-usb3+g510+gt210 would your best choice here is a lot well guided stories of success.

wish you well.
