    greetings to all I would like some advice, a friend of mine bought a Hackintosh used for 400 euro, but does not know that "motherboard" have mechanism implemented on this mac-proHackintosh, who sold it says that you can not remember what.
    there is a way or a free software to know ??
    how can find out what model of motherboard installed ??
    instead the video card seems like a GTX 650 from the seller says.
    Thanks.

    : Cool:

    Have your friend look at the motherboard and see who made it. There should be a model number on it, and then google it. The Bios may have a mention of the type as well.

    You can usually see the motherboard manufacturer and model number, printed directly on the motherboard by the factory.

    or and one of the most economic ??

    The 4790 K is the best quad core available and Gigabyte boards are great for their ease of use with OS X. Seems like your friend got a good deal.
