Hey guys, My brother is getting into filming(I am his cheif editor. Will probablly be working with final cut pro. That why I'm going with Mac) and I want to start programming for the iPhone. I am a PC person, and I don't want to overspend for overpriced prebuilt apple computers. I build my own computers.
I need to be able to use final cut pro, so I need a decent graphics card. My main problem is the installation. I have researched this stuff for 2 days, and I am still confused. I was initially going to buy the EFI-X, until I found out that it was a total scam. Now, when researching other bootloaders, there are Chameleon, Boot-132, iBoot, and some others. Which is the best for Snow Leopard? There is so much, I just cant figure out what.
And what is a Kext? Like from what I see, it is some file that allows the bootloader thing to use a certain piece of hardware.
So far, I am leaning towards a GTX 460 and an intel i5-760. I will be buying a SAMSUNG 1TB Hdd for OS X, and If I really have to, Ill buy another for windows (The problem isn't the Hard drive, its that I don't want to pay for another Windows licence). The PSU I'm getting is the Antec NEO ECO 620C. I am guessing that the RAM and DVD drive don't matter, so I am getting This Memory and this This DVD Drive. As for the case, I want something that looks at least a little like a mac. Of there are any G5 case replicas, that would be great. I am confsed on the motherboard compatibility, so I'll need some help on that.
Where can I buy snow leopard? Online, I only see upgrades from leopard.
