Hi guys!

Here is my first post about building my hackintosh for Christmas. I can get i5 2320 3.00GHz and the GTX560Ti 1GB for making gamer desktop (Win) et Mac OS (Maverick or ML) for working.
I've to buy socket 1155 motherboard but I'd love the better one and low cost possible. Do you have some ideas that I could avoid many issues?

Thank you :)

Any particular reason you want to use 3 generation old hardware when newest does not cost any more? 1155 boards are sometimes hard to find new for decent price.

Your best bet is probably eBay. Look for a Z77 or H77 chipset Gigabyte motherboard...

6 series boards would work better with SB CPU. Mixing Ivy Bridge board and Sandy Bridge CPU is asking for :banghead:
