New Hackintosh Build. i7 3770K, Asrock z77 Extreme4m, NVIDIA 660ti MSI Twin Frozr 4
Hello, I am new to the community and I am currently selling my MacBooks to build a dual boot desktop Hackintosh gaming machine. I have looked at the instructions for building on Life Hacker and have a few questions. The biggest compatibility issues seem to me to be the motherboard and graphics card (as I expected). I want to make sure that my hardware will work with OSX 10.8 Mountain Lion. I have heard tell of successful builds on my Mobo in the community, however I have seen mixed methods as to how. I am a huge fan of the on board BIOS, and thus I'd like to try a DSDT instead of a custom BIOS. I've seen the link to the forum everyone keeps sharing about the Asrock z77 Extreme4, but I didn't find it helpful, please don't share that with me again. I'm asking here, if anyone can confirm a successful boot from this motherboard and if so, could you please provide a direct link to the DSDT file for download reference?
That out of the way, the graphics card I intend to use for gaming on the windows side will be the MSI Twin Frozr 4 NVIDIA 660ti power edition 2gb. Can anyone confirm a successful boot with this card and if so, what settings did you use to achieve compatibility? Did you just turn off Graphics enabler? What must I do to get this card to work? I suspect OSX 10.8 is compatible with most of the NVIDIA 600 series anyway, I just want to make sure I'm right.
Aside from the DSDT and compatibility of the graphics card, is there anything else I need to consider? I know about Unibeast and Multibeast and am prepared to make a legit OSX 10.8 bootable drive.
The rest of my hardware is 16gb of Corsair Dominator 1600mhz RAM, i7 3770k, the Corsair HX 750, WD 1tb Black, and OCZ Agility 3 Max IOPS edition 128gb SSD. I don't suspect any of this other hardware is all too relevant to the build of a Hackintosh and I doubt that any of this will cause me trouble. Correct me if I am wrong. Otherwise, this information is simply here for the sake of completeness and for your consideration. Thank you for any help you can provide, I am looking forward to my completed Hackintosh.
