First off, I'm new to hackintoshes and know next to nothing (although I get the general concept). I wanted to use a optiplex 780 with 16gb of ram, but I was going to upgrade the cpu to a Xeon E5450 ( I know its 771 and the mobo has a 775 socket, but I was going to get one of the modded ones), but I don't know if that will prevent me from hackintoshing it. Help? Its the mid tower by the way. Also, my only mac is an imac g5, could I install mac os X using that and then update it? I'd highly appreciate any help.
