    Hi
    Just wondering if someone can tell me which graphics card out of two to buy for my CustoMac hackintosh. I am between two, and these are:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-GV...DZUG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1316033746&sr=8-1

    AND

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Asus-Graphi...1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1316033845&sr=1-1

    Would both of these work? Am I OK going for the second (cheaper) option?

    I have already asked on Tonymacx etc and got no reply, so if anyone can help, much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Sam

    Yes, both would work. tonymacx86 himself even suggested a 6670 on his site's blog post outlining a few examples of hardware. Good luck!

    Like tf85 alluded to, tonymacx86 is a much better place to ask those questions. The people there are working in the same hardware you are and are friendly and helpful!

    I've looked through those forums and have picked up that the 6670 isn't the best. Does anybody have a recommendation of an alternative graphics card, perhaps an nVidia that's cheap. Looking for the cheapest compatible one.

    What do you mean by not the best? Like not the best for gaming? Not the best quality? Depending on what other components you were thinking of, you might be able to do integrated graphics (if you are going for cheap).
