Hey guys,
I own a 2010 Macbook Pro, and just for a weekend project, I thought I'd build a "Hackintosh", which is installing mac OS X on an intel pc. I've found tutorials regarding this, but the one thing I am stuck on is hardware. I've found some parts that are in my price range, but I wanted to know if they will work when trying to install mac on a pc. Here are the parts:

CPU: Intel E6500 Core 2 Duo Processor - LGA775, 2.93GHz, FSB-1066MHz, 2MB L2 Cache, 45nm

MOTHERBOARD: Asus P5G41T-M LX , all in one mATX Motherboard, ( 2 x DDR3 ) 1600 FSB LGA775 Intel Dual Core/Core 2 Duo/Quad, G41/X4500 graphic, onboard VGA, ,DX10, EPU, 4 x SATA, 1x PCI-E 16x, 2x PCI-E1x, 1x PCI

RAM: Kingston KVR1333D3N9K2/4G 4GB-kit 1333MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 DIMM

GRAPHICS: Asus ATI Radeon 5670 1G DDR3, PCI-E 2.1, HDMI/DVI/HDCP, DX11, Fan

Please let me know if these parts will work when installing mac?

Thanks

Sorry, no help with Hackintoshes on this forum.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
