no..... take my specs below ... instead of my e4500, get a e6600 and, get a asus 7300gt silent pci-e 256 mb video card(i think it is like 70 bucks).... you'll have a board (ga-945gcmx-s2 or ga-945gcmx-s2c) that is very compatible (even sleep/wake).... i heard it can do like 4 gb ram....you can do a rig like that for less than $700

Thanks a lot, guys!


I just ordered the mobo: Gigabyte GA-945GCM-S2C 775 mATX Motherboard. It seems to be the easiest board to install leopard. Will report back result here afer installation.

So? how did it go? i have the same mobo, but i can't get it to work, I tried brazil disk, i heard it works great with Kaylaways.

Tell me your bios setting when it works.
