Hey guys,

I'm trying to put together my 2nd hackintosh and want to get some opinions for what I should get and what I have chosen so far.

The main goal is to have the original kernal and efi emulation for apple updates.


I've heard that the xfx geforce 7600gt works out of the box for 10.5.1. I am looking for the best compatability for leopard and performance say for final cut pro. Any help with a choice for video cards would greatly help me.

thanks in advance
