    best motherboard for hackintosh i7 2600k

    GA-P67A-UD3-B3 is the better board imo The only real advantage in z68 chipset is in bus for intel graphics. If you are using discrete graphics the P67 series is better because it's slightly less expensive but is exactly the same board. z68 and p67 (ud3) will perform the same in OC-ing To be...

    6850 Not in Profiler correctly

    Small odd issue looking for insight. My 6850 works great. Am using Duckweed and it loads the correct frambuffer but the card does not appear in system profiler. It shows up under Graphics/Display but not under PCi Cards. Something to do with Chimera? Or have I done something wrong? Ty

    How to install the Ati HD 6850 graphic card

    I have the same card. If you are already running 10.6.7 you can install Chimera and set graphics enabler to no in com.apple.Boot.plist Your system should boot without issue Be sure to use the HDMi out and a single monitor until you get it up and running. Then you can tweak it to run dual...

    [SOLVED]Gigabyte 6850 Dual Screens GE=Yes with Duckweed

    Re: Gigabyte 6850 Dual Screens not working GE=Yes Okay I'm a big Poopycock. I found Tony's blog post about not needing injection on 5xxx/6xxx cards. I guess I been out of the loop for a while. So I removed ATY_init and set GE=No and it boots fine, no injection and both screens working perfectly.
