I am looking at some low cost upgrades to better support running Mac OS X on it for a hackintosh system. And I am looking at getting a better CPU, more specificly this one -> http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819115206 It is an Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 Wolfdale.
Cross checking the biostar site here http://www.biostar-u...rt.php?S_ID=158 says it wont go since it isn't list in the model list of supported CPUS, but the FSB and Watt requirments match, the only diff is the CPU on biostar is a diff model and slower speed and the one I am looking at is 2.8ghz instead.
I would like to get the E8400 and throw it in that system, since it flies along. I've had really good preformance with it in my other desktop.
So simply, Will the Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 work in the biostar board, if not will the one listed above work? My limit is $200 for cpu, ram, gfx card.
ram and gfx is under 120
