Hey

Has any one built one for Photoshop editing? Also does anyone use Capture One Pro? Is there any issues with it?

I'm a complete novice to Hackintosh but have past experience at building computers if it helps me (although last one I built was about 15 years ago).

I'm looking to build for photo editing, my ideal is as powerful as possible but I will be on a budget and want it under £1000.

Can I get some advice on what to get. is it best to stick to the shopping list CustoMac Pro and not divert off or will I get a better system from using other bits.

Motherboards - are gigabyte best for compatibility? I was thinking would be good to get one with thunderbolt but range is limiting with that priority.

CPU - Xeon or i5 or i7, to overclock and get external fan?

I have a old G5 tower case can I use this and the power supply that comes with it??

any help and advice on where to start would be helpful

thanks

Ben

Please read rules about using search before posting - there are dozens of PS users. Don't know about Capture One - isn't that a bench mark app? Or is the benchmark app part of the main app?

For the G5, see http://www.tonymacx86.com/powermac-g5/

For recommended hardware see the Buyer's Guide
