How could I make this work with WiFi?

Just add the TPLink wifi card into an open PCIe slot. Works natively.
Find it in the Buyer's Guide. If you want to save some money the
Rosewill version costs less and works too. Only available for U.S. buyers.

look at this: http://www.tonymacx86.com/guidebeast.php for a visual walkthrough.

What you choose for audio and networking depends on which motherboard
you are using. Look here for those: http://www.tonymacx86.com/411-building-customac-buyer-s-guide-february-2014.html#motherboards

Audio will likely be ALC 892 or 898 and internet will be Intel or Realtek if you chose a motherboard
from the buyer's guide.

Please post any further questions in the Installation section of the forum. Thanks.

do you guys know if Wake On Lan works with this CPU/Mobo combo? I know that Hackintosh's in general don't work with WOL. I'm using it for a backup utility and most importantly an iTunes Server so I need to know if it will work.

Thanks in advance.

Hi all,

I'm a newbie, so maybe some of my questions will sound lame ...

I wonder if a 35$ celeron G1820 would support maverick ?
If yes, what would be the cheapest GPU to add to replace missing HD4600 and have a proper display ?
And can I use a DVI-I VGA adapter to use DVI output to plug my old 19" VGA monitor then as a primary display (no secondary monitor yet) ?

Thanks in advance !

It's not recommended but you could try it and it would likely work for basic everyday use.

Nvidia GT610

Not likely to work, use a monitor with HDMI or DVI inputs.
