I wish to learn more about OSx so I am looking for how to build a hackintosh. I have no idea so I am kinda looking for a full step by step guide.

System Specs in my Sig. If you need anything else please let me know or also suggest a program that could just pull up all the details. Thanks.

InsanelyMac is a good source for info. Seems to be down just at the minute. If you want to get an idea of whether your hardware is supported try the program here (requires Java). Pick "check compatibility" from the file menu and it will scan your hardware and report what is known to be supported.

I heard there was a freezing issue with fermi cards. Not sure if that's been fixed yet.
