    this is what I managed to get out of my $1000.00 Hackintosh project. It hold up pretty well to the Mac Pro's considering their cost and performance compared to mine.
    Does anyone Have a hackintosh they would like to post the Geekbench of?:apple:

    this is not a hackintosh forum. while I do think there is discussion to be made of mac pro vs hacks, an all hackintosh-thread certainly does not belong here

    Actually, you are aloud to talk about hackintosh's. There is nothing wrong with them. Personally, if I didn't love the look and simplicity of genuine Apple products, I would be using a Hackintosh.

    I'm well aware, as you can see in my sig I have one of the largest hackintosh threads here. But I made it from a Mac Pro vs Hack Pro point of view. after all this forum is called Apple Hardware > Desktops > Mac Pro, Power Mac

    I think that Cindori's point is valid: this is a forum for users of Apple PowerMac and MacPro computers, and although Hackintosh talk is not forbidden here, it seems inappropriate to have a thread comparing Hackintoshes to Hackintoshs - there are osx86 forums for that. I'd like to further add that spcopsmac21 is demonstrating the kind of immature and inflammatory behaviour that I have so happily seen absent elsewhere on this forum.

    Pardon me, I miss interpreted. I thought you were referring MacRumors as a whole.

    Again, apologies.

    However, in another forum, I feel this OP is not immature, and completely valid.

    mine hits about 4,000 ;)

    not bad for a $500Aus ($~400US) machine.

    My time is too valuable to be messing around with building computers and trying to hack it up to run OS X and troubleshooting it.

    And the last thing I would want is some unsupported computer with a hacked on OS. Beside My workstation has paid for itself a long time ago and then some, with the first block of contracts sold on CBOE.

    I was for a short while considering building a machine rather than paying for MP '10, but as hugodrax said, time is to valuable to waste on software modification.

    No software modification needed. You can use a retail version of Snow Leopard nowadays. ;)

    Maybe its just me showing my age (at 17?). I used to be a part of the community when doing it meant compiling custom code modifications, and basically fending for yourself. Today it is so much different, I see 12 year-olds labeling themselves as "hackers" because they clicked a button for an injection to enable QE/CI :rolleyes:

    We will see what March brings us in terms of Mac Pro hardware, the ~$1,700 in savings by going to the dark side could be spent on so many different things :)
