Thread: Hackintosh

  1. #1

    Hackintosh

    I'm in need of a new computer and I think I'm going to aim for a dual booting (maybe even triple) Hackintosh setup so I can stay familiar with app development.

    What I've gathered so far is that Gigabyte or ASUS boards are best. AMD Radeon 6600 and 6800 series cards are pretty good to use as well as Intel CPU no older than 2010.

    I'm thinking about a GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard or this GIGABYTE GA-Z77-DS3H

    and a GIGABYTE Ultra Durable VGA Series GV-R685OC-1GD Radeon HD 6850 for the graphics card.

    It seems like many gamers are happy with that card and it is also compatible with the newest OSx

    Has anyone else attempted this? Thoughts?

    While I'm looking at it, here is a link to a wiki of known supported cards

    http://legacy.tonymacx86.com/wiki/in..._Card_Database

    Just in case someone wants to build one of these after me

  3. Frankensteined one a couple years ago from spare parts. It was a PITA and took weeks to get running reliably.

    Be smart. Follow the build guides and don't sub anything not listed. There are lots more tools and info around now to make it real easy.

    I'm planning to put another together someday.

    It's subtle, you wouldn't understand it.

  10. I did understand it, and i was going to posta to Josh saying it was intentional. But then i figured he knew that already and didn't care.
    Still not funny.
