  Old  Hackintosh

Hello,

I'm not going to be building a new computer for a while now, but I was wondering if anyone here has built one and how they did it. I read "Building a Hackintosh Apple Can't Sue You For", but this guide is hardware-specific.

I would be looking to build a computer using an ATX motherboard, and that guide is for a mini-ITX.

If anyone has any hardware suggestions, that would be great!

I would be dual-booting this with Linux, so that I could use the Mac partition for using some things such as Adobe software, and use the Linux partition for everything else.

I followed the UD3P guide at:

Full parts list:

As mentioned on the Leopard Soup wiki, the motherboard and graphics card and the parts you most need to check for compatibility, but that's not too hard as InsanelyMac has a forum dedicated to hardware discussion.

Other things you'll want to read before attempting any build:
