I am currently looking to build a Hackintosh within the next few weeks and have been pricing out many components and the only part i cannot seem to decide on is a wireless card. I would call my self a noob to some extent but i have done my research and found that i should be very cautious in my selection of USB wireless device, to my knowledge there are drivers for the Ralink chip-sets but many people have had trouble with these on 10.7.2. Are there chip-sets/devices that are working at the moment for Lion 10.7.2? If so what are my choices and what of those choices would you recommend?

Anyone wanna run down my list and see If i made a build?
(I plan on OCing my i5 to 4.0 GHz if heat does not become a problem)

For those interested in everything I plan on using for my build:

The most OSX compatible way is to build your own wireless card using Apple components. See here: http://x86wifi.blogspot.com/2010/04/how ... -card.html

You can sometimes find these ready made on eBay. Search for Hackintosh.

Thanks I really am debating a few other parts which im going to make another thread for, but i think i am going the DIY way on the Wireless Card.
