Hey everyone so I am thinking about doing a retro build that will support os x 10.6.8 but don't see a list of compatible parts for that version. This is what I am currently looking at...

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400 (already have this, I also have a core 2 duo e6400 if needed)
gigabyte lga 775 socket (don't remember board off top of head)
ddr2 800mhz ram
WD Blue 1tb
GeForce GT 210 (maybe a Radeon HD 5870 later)

Comment if anything won't work with 10.6.8 and also if you can start to share compatable parts as I want to make a thread of all snow leopard ready parts.

Disclaimer:
I am doing this to run rosetta PowerPC programs / games and because I hate whats happened to Apple since Steve left.
