So I found an old G5 tower with broken screen, keyboard and mouse at a dump. Taking it home was tricky since the dump site has strict laws about taking things out of the area and using it. Of course I was able to sneak it through and look into it. Doing my research the 2005 G5 series was a PowerPC (none intel base) since 2006 all newer form case are intel and so the OS (which runs specific hardware) no longer support power PC (AMD processor) I used to run Hackintosh on my compaq laptop and on my clients ACER laptop dual boot with window 7. I was running Snow leopard 10.6.7 and upgraded my client to 10.7.5 lion from snow leopard with some minor problems. So I do have some what first hand at working and troubleshooting MAC on none apple PC. I was looking at this topic on how to build a hacintosh LINK they specificly say to find and run Z77MX-QUO-AOS board with either an i3 or i5 processor. I want to make this a budget build since I really don't plan on doing much with the MAC I just wanted to understand more of how to build and install if that makes sense. I am also thinking of selling the whole thing off later on. But for right now I have plenty of question about working around on a G5 as well as hardware specific to run a Hacintosh. question: 1. Hardware type specific for the hacintosh... A lot of people say I can run Hackintosh on ANY board and hardware configuration type (avoiding AMD unless I plan to run MAC os X 10.5 and lower) They mention looking at gigabyte board? Why?? 2. I don't want to do to much to the case I prefer to leave it as factory form but since it is a MAC are the spacer and screw hole in the right place to fit a mini ATX? What if I have to go and use a ATX will I have to make some modifications? 3. Watercool Mac a yes or a no? The G5 case comes with a ridiculously oversize heat sink with the very beautiful mirror "G5" logo over the top I think it is beautiful. I would like to keep the G5 logo but place the Corsair H100 watercool in to the case. 4. Stability issue with graphic card... Reading for the past 3 days on different topic seems that the Hackintosh has a stability issue with all AMD (ATI) graphic, they were able to patch in the kernel in some of the old graphic series card and also been having issue with some of the Nvidia geforce graphic card. Few topic on MAC forum did say it is better to go with a Intel HD graphic card since they are stable they are more recommended. So this are all the question I have... I am new to building a hackintosh so if anyone has ever attempted please fill me.
