    Looking for any motherboard that works well for a hackintosh - have an itch to build a 10.6.4 box for some odd reason --

    I've heard that the GA-EP45-UD3P is the best one to get, so that's at the top of my list. I'm open to other suggestions if anyone out there has any recomendations.

    Gigabyte is a good choice imho, simply because they're using hardware that's supported pretty well in OSX.

    http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/ is a good site, but focuses mainly on the LGA-1156 platform

    I used INtel D975 XBX2 without any issues.

    That's a very good board except for the ungodly long post time that plagues most performance boards. :rolleyes: I never had one problem with Intel boards.

    Oh, I nearly forgot, another reason to go with Gigabyte is this guy http://cartri.net/blog/
    He makes custom OSX BIOSes for Gigabyte boards that allow them to work much better with OSX
