Greetinks! (am i sposed to start a new thread??)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
The forum said introduce yourself, so I am...

Hey all, Im new and hoping to begin a journey on the road to Overclocking Mastery.. well, for now i just have a little question needs answering, and you can help here!! ehe, ahem.. pls do

In other news, I'm currently in laptop land, on a crappy Acer pentium M, running Ubuntu. Seeing as I have fallen in love with OSX, I aspire one day to run an iMac when Leopard comes out and i have some cash..

Unless of course i'm convinced i can run Leopard happily on a Core 2 system, which should probly save me some $$, but I look at OSx86 project and feel queasy - dont think i could pull it off

later!

Welcome to the boards! Enjoy your stay.

Don't feel queasy about the OSx86 project, my suite mate got it running perfectly on a Gigabyte board. The only thing he needed to do was get a separate hard drive for loading OSX on.

Thanks all.

Re osx86, i guess what im concerned about is getting a hardware config that everything will work on - i mean, a lot of configurations can run osx, but they often have some features that dont work (like Ubuntu on my lappy! ehe..) but ideally i'd want it all to work.

If i wanted a half-baked system, id have stuck with Windows..

Leave while you can. Really, Overclock.net just consumes you. Its unnoticeable at first, but over time it becomes an undeniable urge.
