Recommended Parts for build

Recommended Posts



I am new here :wacko: , and want to do a build :D . I built loads of PC's in the past and recently got an iMac, which I like, but the lack of upgradability is killing me :thumbsdown_anim: , and {censored} me if I am going to get a Mac Pro! They look good but cost way too much :thumbsdown_anim: .


I just saw on Engadget them talking about Psystar offering Mac builds that can install Vanilla copies of Leopard!


This got me excited because if I can build a system and have it running perfectly with and be able to reinstall etc if I need to in the future then that is amazing!


I don't want to go all out, but I want to get a nice GPU (around $300-400) and a pretty damn good CPU.



:thumbsup_anim: So!!! :thumbsup_anim: Please recommend parts for a good build that will mean i have full functionality/compatibility.

And do i need EFI Emulation. :pirate2:

Better to have everything prebuilt, there's a $440 dell [q6600, onboard graphics]: http://forums.slickdeals.net/showthread.ph...amp;t=794975


On the same forum there is another dell with intel q6600 and a 24'' monitor for around 600 dollars, i think the 24'' monitor can be sold for $300+ in case you don't want it.

Most pc's u build now will be compatible with leopard, for compatibility, go to: http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page



For installation, go to: http://inihilist.wordpress.com/2008/04/05/...and-fool-proof/


I think if your cpu has sse3, you'll be able to do efi, almost every cpu in the links above can do efi
