So I use my mac mostly for photoshop work, web development, etc- and bootcamp for gaming. Current have the 8 core- 2.26 machine from early 2009. I'm noticing that it's starting to feel a tad slow running the tasks I rely on it for. With all the component sales going on the past few days I've started to slowly buy up pc components thinking it'd be a fun little project to build a hackintosh. I'm thinking of building a rig with a i7-3770K @ 3.5 ghz, 16 gig of ram, a 660ti vid card, etc etc. I'm referencing the tonymacx86 blog for help. So basically I want your opinions. Is this a mistake? I'm guessing the final cost for this build will be <$1200.. and mac pro has been sort of the bastard step child at apple for years with its outdated tech. So I'd like to hear what you all think. Should i stick with the mac i have now and just try to upgrade the ram? go forward as planned?
