    Wonder if I can make a little Hackintosh out of this. Even if I don't I may build a simple Windows/Ubuntu boxen

    Except of course that the mobo is no longer available anywhere. Is there another Gigabyte alternative?

    That's actually not bad looking. I've been looking for a decent looking PC case for my mom's PC and I can't stand the look of them. They're way too big and flashy.

    I like the case...Indeed it has elements of Apple about it, and yes you could make a very nice Hackintosh in that cute box. Been thinking of doing similar for a neighbour who can't afford a Mac, but wants to try OSX. Might get one of these as a starting point...Non of his current PC stuff is compatible with any Hackintosh installations I have found.

    Maybe, but when it comes to hackintosh-ing, beggars cant be choosers regarding the feature set of the board. If I was buying a new board, I would choose compatibility over brand. The features included would be a bonus. That mentality was probably ingrained in me due to the limited hardware options available during the Tiger osx86 days.

    The board I linked, I would still do more research on it before I would choose it. It is featured in this guide here so it sounds promising: http://lifehacker.com/5841604/the-always-up+to+date-guide-to-building-a-hackintosh
