I am thinking about building a hackintosh but can't seem to find a hackable ATX motheboard for around £70 ($110).

Thank you!!

Do you want a Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge board?

If that's the case, you'll be better off with a 6x series board such as a Z68. To make it easiest on yourself, look at Gigabyte for maximum compatibility. Now... Do you need an mATX or does your case have enoguh room for full ATX?

I found the motherboard I mentioned above on UK Amazon. This should cut it.

This board assumes you're using HDMI out, though. It doesn't have DVI. But if that's what you planned on doing anyway, then I can't find a reason in the world why this board wouldn't suit your needs for about the price you want to pay.
