    Default What computer should I buy for OSx86?
    I'm considering buying a new computer to make an OSx86 PC. What have you all purchased that you have up and running with little problems? I'm trying to encourage discussion to help others in the future as well so please help!

    I'm running a home-built PC with:

    Gigabyte GA965P-DS3 v2 motherboard
    Intel Q6600 Quad Core cpu
    OCZ 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual
    Channel RAM
    NVidia GeForce 7900 GS video card
    Several SATA 3.0 drives (about 3.5T space)

    If I were to plan to have dual OS on my computer, it would have to be DESKTOP, not laptop/notebook... Having Mac OS and Windows in one is amazing. There's some applications that I can't do on Windows. I'm planning to buy a desktop at least 2 or 3GB. of memory ram. I don't know about the video card, probably Nvidia 256MB or ATI and processor. AMD is great for power. I would go with AMD but Intel is also great for less power consuming.

    If your going to build a hack go with an Intel proc, it is 10x more stable and compatible.

    Build one. It's cheaper, you can get specific parts that work with OSX86, and you can put however much power/etc. on it.

    Use this for 10.5.6 parts: HCL 10.5.6 - OSx86
    Use this for 10.5.7 parts: HCL 10.5.7 - OSx86
    If I helped you, then hit the "Thanks!" button please.

    I've got a Dell Latitude E6400 running OSX Mountain lion fine
    They're really good and easy to set up.

    Intel Proc is pretty great for stability.
