The i5 4440 is 3,1Ghz, not 3,0Ghz.

Thanks for the heads up - just fixed it. :thumbup:

I have a suggestion for future Buyer's Guides: Please include the type of onboard graphics in the CPU listings. This would be extremely helpful for folks who don't necessarily want to buy a discrete graphics card.

Each Intel CPU in the Haswell Buyer's Guide comes with HD 4600 onboard. :thumbup:

As noted in the CPU section: All CPUs feature Intel HD 4600 integrated graphics.

Another suggestion for future Buyer's Guides: Include a list of Mini-PCIe Wifi adapters, along with a link to the guide thread(s).

Check out this part of the guide here: http://www.tonymacx86.com/405-building-customac-buyer-s-guide-december-2013.html#mini

We have a wifi card included with each build (it's also listed in the accessories), and we also link to a post for WIFI-only card solutions if you don't need bluetooth: http://www.tonymacx86.com/network/58146-guide-airport-half-mini-pcie.html

:oops: I guess I need to read the Buyer's Guide a little closer before making suggestions... However, you might want to change that half Mini PCIe link to the new thread, which has updated information as well as Wifi + BT options: http://www.tonymacx86.com/network/104850-guide-airport-pcie-half-mini-v2.html.

p.s. The GuideBeast is pure genius! I don't know who came up with it, but I really like it!

Hi All,

An office mate of mine said like 'if you got some more bucks to make your build future proof you can go to 760 also, may be MSI Hawk' here ...
:arrow: http://www.msi.com/product/vga/N760-HAWK.html
:arrow: http://www.amazon.com/MSI-Computer-Graphics-N760-HAWK/dp/B00ENU2KAQ/

Actually is cuts lot of my bucks for sure but it will be future proof too.
Any idea if Hawk be compatible with hakintosh? :)
MSI OC vs is compatible I guess.
