Help with chosing Hackintosh Hardware!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone :),

 

My name is Michael, and I have been having some issue trying to decide which PC parts will be compatible with OS X Mavericks 10.9 (Niresh Distro of course lol)

 

PC parts that I have chosen so far and I need to make sure that they are compatible...so that is were you (the viewer/helper) comes in :), any help will be much appreciated :D

 

Part list:

 

- Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97X-GAMING 7 LGA 1150

Processor:          Intel i3-4330 Dual Core 3.5 ghz

- Ram:              Corsair Vengence 8gb Ram DDR3 1600

HDD:                  WD 1TB Blue

- PCU:              Corsair CX 430 Watt

 

So if anyone can help at all try to determine if these parts will work that would be awesome and also please contact me on Twitter @Michaelkintner1 if you have any input please on email me @ Michaelkintner35@gmail.com   also another thing is that I am not sure if the Z97 Chipset is compatible with Niresh Hackintosh, but I hope it is and most Gigabyte Motherboards are supported thankfully :)

 

Thank you for your time,

Also you might want to use an Intel core i5, graphics are the most important. There are nvidia & ATI cards that work out of the box. You can google those. And when you intalled Niresh, try to make an vanilla install. They work way better than disro's

@sloeberGJ I was wondering what i5 processor to get that has good integrated graphics?  Also I would still want it to be socket 1150 because I really want that motherboard for my Hackintosh build :).  Also I hope that the Z97 chipset is supported by hackintosh Mavericks :).  One more thing...what is Vanilla install I have never heard of it?

@ Oh ok thank you for the info :) and I also heard that MSI Motherbaords can use Hackintosh but you have to modify the bios?  How do you modify the bios to make the MSI motherbaord be compatible?

@ would you consider this to be a good processor and I may also want to install Yosemite when it officially comes out :) and do you think that the i5 processor can handle Yosemite? http://www.amazon.com/Intel-Quad-Core-Processor-Graphics-BX80646I54570/dp/B00CO8TA4I/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1410126214&sr=8-1&keywords=Intel+i5+1150
