That's just the thing. I like tinkering.

Also I failed to mention that once you learn how to build these hackintosh machines, you only get better. It took me months to get my Snow Leopard installed on my Dell, and more months to get Lion on it. But that was because there isn't a lot of documentation for it.

Getting Lion installed on my desktop only took about 3 hours total, and it's a perfect clone with all hardware working. Even my 5870 has native support. A comparable Mac Pro is about $3000.

EDIT: I like how the Apple store still lists the 5770 as "powerful new graphics cards" hahaha
