    i3 Now, Ivy Bridge Later?

    I want to get the GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 motherboard for my new build. I really want the i7, but I am not sure if it is worth right now because of Ivy Bridge coming out early next year. I was wondering if you think it would be wise to get the i3 now and the next generation processors later? Because...

    Corsair Vengeance Question

    I have heard that you can not just add in sticks of RAM if you want to upgrade. Lets say I bough an 8gb kit of off Amazon and wanted to add another for a total of 16gb, that is not possible and I would have to buy a 16gb kit to replace the current kit of ram. Is this true? Any workarounds? Thanks!

    mATX vs ATX

    There is not a lot of differences between the two, correct? I am not sure if I will ever use the extra PCI-E (or whatever it is called) slots because I plan to mod a PowerMac G5/ Mac Pro and I want to make sure either board will work. I was considering using this mATX board...

    Get New Motherboard For Ivy Bridge Or Keep?

    In order to keep the cost of my build down, I am changing some parts of the SandyBridge build 3. I am going with an Intel i3 2100 processor instead of an i5, and a 5770. However, I still going to use the same motherboard, or at least that is what I was thinking. I mainly went with the i3 because...

    Sandy Bridge E?

    Do you guys think we will get Sandy Bridge E support by the end of the year when they come out? Six cores of awesome would be great in a little hackintosh ;) If there will be support I might as well get an i3 and upgrade to that by Christmas! Thoughts?

    Silverstone FT03

    I am thinking of purchasing this case for my build, but I see it uses a slot loading optical drive. I know only certain drives work with Hackintosh, so do you think it will work? Are there any success stories using this case? Thanks. Another question to anyone who has purchased this, does the...

    Will any 5770 work? Any other OOB cards?

    I see that it is recommended and favored by the staff to get the 'Batmobile' 5770, but it is no longer sold on Amazon or NewEgg. There are various other models though, and I am wondering if it would matter if I bought one of those instead? I am mainly looking for a graphics card that is OOB...

    Two Momentus XT Drives? One for OS X and One for Windows 7?

    I was thinking of getting a SSD when I order soon (Sandybridge CustoMac build #2), but I saw for the price of two 500gb Momentus drives is the same as a 256gb SSD. So I was wondering if I could just use two Momentus XT drives instead of a SSD? I would buy a 320GB for Windows and another for OS...

    Thoughts On Buying Used Hackintosh'?

    I have come across a great deal on craigslist for a hackintosh. It has an i7 Processor OC'd, 12gb of RAM, Asus HD6970, 60 GB SSD, and 1tb hard drive. It seems like a good deal and it is only $800. Do you think it will be worth it to buy a pre-built hackintosh? For the same price I wonn't be able...
