So. I wanna get into the Hackintosh world but I got no clue about the Hardware I should buy. I also made a thread in the german board section yesterday. But it seems like there isn't anyone who could help me :( .

First of all I want to be as cheap as possible because of if I like to work with Mac OS X I wanna get a Macbook. The second important fact is that I need hardware that is supported native or at least needs no massive editing to run.


I just did some research and thought about those hardware components:


Mainboard: - Asrock ConRoe1333-D667

CPU: - Intel® Pentium DualCore E2140

CPU-cooler: - Arctic-Cooling Alpine 7

Ram: - Crucial DIMM 2 GB DDR2-667 Kit

HDD: - Western Digital Caviar SE WD1200JB Boxed (120 GB; IDE)

DVD burnerr: - Sony NEC Optiarc AD-7170A (IDE)

Floppy: - NEC floppy drive


What do you think about the config? Should I stick to a SATA HDD and burner? Is the mainboard okay for cpu overclocking? Anything you would change?


Thanks for your help :D !
