- core i3-3225
- HD 4000
- Classic Mac
- Mobile Phone
i ordered mine today and read through the entire thread. this will be my first hackintosh build, but i am also on a tight budget.
I already have this case (Antec NSK 2480)
and 8gb of ram
I am trying to decide if I want to chance it with a SB CPU or go for IB HD4000 for what looks like no headaches.
If i go for IB, ill be going for the i3 3225, though 144$ seems like a lot for a cpu (i havent done an intel build in years).
Also, what is the general consensus for ease? 10.7 or 10.8? Thanks in advance.
$10-15 of savings are NOT worth the hassle. You could spend days trying to get SB CPU working with ML and this board. It may work, who knows, with manual updates of plist files and such, but I would go with 3225.
