    Default Need suggestions on a hackintosh/ PC BF3 gaming rig (thru bootcamp)

    Wow haven't been around here in years. I wonder if there are any oldies still lingering these forums. Anyway, I am back to see if I can recieve some recommendations for a new build.

    I am trying to arrange the right parts for both a gaming windows PC and a hackintosh.

    I am sure I will be sacrificing some performance trying to get the right part for the hackintosh but I know I want the hackintosh more than the gaming rig. I am sure the Bf3 fury will slowly die down...especially with MW3 coming up.

    Anyway the setup is as follows (so far):

    i5-2500K Sandy
    GIGABYTE GA-Z68MX-UD2H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68
    CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB)PC1600
    GIGABYTE 685O OC Radeon HD 6850
    60GB SSD (don't know yet) as a OS host drive

    So that's what I have so far. Newegg has a coolermaster 650W for 88 buck. I plan on using an antec old server case I have.

    looks ok to me,really need 16gb of ram? 8 would be plenty?how much price difference between the 2500k and the 2600k? 2600k multithreading would help alot in video encoding ect
