So, this is my 1st Build and to be honest it couldn't have gone any smother. I followed all the advice from the guides and installed Mountain Lion with no problems at all, i also looked around the forums and Google to see what MulitBeast settings people used for my Motherboard. The machince is running flawlessly with no problems.
Thank you TonyMac

I do intend in the near future to buy a Core i7-3770K. I assume there would be no issues with this?

The only problem i did have was a slow bootup time roughly about 30 seconds, however i managed to fix this buy looking in forums and i found this http://www.tonymacx86.com/mountain-lion-desktop-support/65106-mountain-lion-slow-boot-up-time-5.html
now my bootup time is between 10-15 secs

Other than that the only other issue i have is that it seems to think i running Dual Monitors ?
im currently uplugged into graphics card via HDMI so if anyone has any advice please help.

I will Update with pictures of my G5 case soon!

Why i Built a Hackintosh?
Well other than the fact its great value for money and that i totally enjoyed the whole experience. I built this machine solely for use of music production. My MacBook (2008) could not handle what i expected from it. I am currently using Pro Tools 8 M Powered with a M-Audio Ultra 8r and everything runs smoothly with no crashes and time outs.

Would you mind posting your BIOS setting changes, as well as what selections you made in Unibeast? That would help me, as my build is very similar to yours (without graphics card) and has NOT been smooth.

Also, is your MB the rev. 1.1 with the F9 BIOS?

A fellow UK hackintosher!

You were very lucky to get the G5 case at that price.

Anyway, I wanted to ask if the Bluetooth dongle fully worked with Mountain Lion including sleep and wake.
I wanted to get an IOGear adapter but it seems like it is very hard to get in the UK without paying ridiculous shipping prices.

Thanks
