So im a first time builder, and i want to make a hackintosh... on a budget under $450
and i need help building one since im so noob. lol
so preferably a gaming one, or one that can handle games quite well. well atleast play sims 3 smoothly with settings on high.
I have a case, cd drive & monitor that i can use, so i basically only need cpu (intel obviously), motherboard, ram (pref. 4-8GB), hard drive (pref. 500GB-1TB), graphics card and... is there anything else ? lol. not quite worried about the smaller things, like fans and stuff, as i can just buy it at my local computer shop.
So what do you's think about this... rig system setup thing ? and yeah, im not sure if it'll work or not... coz im that noob and since its going to be a hackintosh.
MSI H55M-E23 LGA 1156 Intel H55 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel Core i3-540 Clarkdale 3.06GHz LGA 1156 73W Dual-Core Desktop Processor BX80616I3540
HITACHI Deskstar 7K1000.C HDS721010CLA332 (0F10383) 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
EVGA 01G-P3-N959-TR GeForce 9500 GT 1GB 128-bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
G.SKILL NS 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-4GBNS
so yeah, if you can, tell me if it'll work, what you think, and if you want to, please write a configuration or whatever that would work better, is cheaper, or whatever. and im not that flexible with my budget, so yeah. max is around $480, but want it to be less that $450
oh, and also. please dont get too detailed or use big words :) lol
