I play an old game that will only work on 10.4-10.6. So I would like to run 10.8(which i will upgrade to 10.9 in the fall), 10.4-10.6 and windows. I am planning on going for maximum compatibility. I'm going to be doing a vanilla install. I've read the guides for both Chameleon seems to be slightly more user friendly where as Clover seems to have more boot options. Am I off base with this? Should I go with Chameleon because i found the guide easier to understand?

 

GIGABYTE GA-Z77MX  

Intel Core i5-3570K

GeForce GTX 660

 

I am hoping to get everything working including multi monitor, sound, usb, wifi, shut down and sleep. Am I in over my head for hackontosh noob. Any advise would be awesome.

If you have UEFI MB and want to use it in UEFI mode all the time (without switching back and forth when a different OS is used i.e. UEFI for Windows and legacy mode for Chameleon + OS X), then Clover all the way. I'm not 100% sure on 10.4 support in both boot loaders.

 

Clover should be used with UEFI, while Chameleon only works in legacy (BIOS) mode.
