    Hi all,

    I am looking into building a Hackintosh as my current Windows machine has gone t*tsup (random freezing, I suspect the motherboard).

    I want to run a patched version of Leopard.

    I would like suggestions for the following, preferably from someone who has done this before.

    - Which board and chip should I buy? I want an Intel Core2Duo based system. Must be good enough to run Leopard smoothly. Onboard graphics would be a big bonus. I'm assuming ATi graphics would be a good choice as most current Macs seem to use this.

    My budget for both board and chip is £50-£80 all in, so I don't have a huge budget to play with.

    - Which patched version of Leopard should I run?

    Cheers.

    I run a Gigabyte GA-G31M-S2L with a E2160.
    The board runs the new Intel GMA graphics(Can't remember the model)
    Ive used both Kallyway and iDenab and both work bout of the "box".

    Ive used 10.5.2 but I now see that 10.5.6 is out.

    If your not sure check this out.

    Gigabyte boards are your best bet really.

    i tryed to put iDenab onto my machine, but failed due to my graphics card being strange in memory size and the GPU is unknown to Apple.

    have a look at this list and pick one :)
