  1. Cheapest Graphic Card For Hackintosh

    Hi, My configuration is: Processor: Intel Corei3 3220 RAM: 1x4GB 1033 Corsair Monitor: Samsung LCD on DVI-D Cable Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H77 DS3H I have installed Niresh Mavericks 10.9 on my PC with Windows 7 dual boot. I am able to run Mavericks but there is no hardware acceleration as native apps like safari flicker a lot. So my question is: Will ZOTAC NVIDIA GEFORCE GT210 1 GB DDR3 GRAPHICS CARD run Mavericks on my configuration? I need it to run at 1600x900 resolution. Does it have suppport OOB or any fixes would be required? Further, is it still the cheapest graphics card or any other alternate has come up? PS: I am from Delhi, India. Thanks a lot.
  2. Hi, Firstly, many thanks to Niresh for making Mac OS X available on PC! I have installed Niresh Mavericks 10.9 on my Intel PC, which is in dual boot configuration with Windows 7. Computer specifications are: - Intel Core i3 3220 Processor - Gigabyte H77-DS3H Motherboard - 1 x 4 GB Corsair RAM - No external graphics card - 160 GB Seagate HDD (with 60 GB allocated to Mavericks) The problem is that the OS is not running smoothly in terms of graphics performance as native apps like safari run with slow and chopped graphics. I guess this might be because the OS is not supporting my graphics card natively (its Intel HD 3000 graphics). To solve this, I downloaded kext for HD3000/4000 from this site. But even after installing them, the situation is same. On booting, I get a warning that "HD 4000 graphics does not support 1024 MB. Please change it to 32MB, 64MB or 96MB in BIOS. Press a key to continue". On pressing any key, the OS is loaded successfully, but if I change my video memory to 96MB or lower in BIOS, then OS does not load at all and it hangs on a black (or sometimes a white screen). Please help me with this! Thanks.
