After the endless struggle trying to get OSX86 to work properly on my 'main' computer (Asus A8N-VM CSM + Athlon 64) I've decided to build my own FrankenMac on-the-cheap using various bits and pieces I have lying around plus some new parts.


Already have:

- case + PSU

- 250 GB Hitachi Deathstar 7K250 (IDE)


- keyboard, mouse, screen


To buy:

- Asrock 775i945GZ (GMA950, max 800/533 MHz FSB), approx €50

- Intel Core 2 Duo E2140 (1.6 GHz, 800 MHz FSB) + fan, approx €75

- Kingston ValueRam 2x512 MB (PC4300, 533 MHz), approx €35


Will this work out-of-the-box using uphuck 1.3? If I read the HCL correctly, it should...

Performancewise, I expect it to be about as fast overall as the current baseline Mac Mini (a bit slower on the cpu side, bit faster due to more mem & faster HD), is that realistic?
