Thanks to everyone for their thoughts and hardware suggestions for my
Hackintosh project.

Just about finished my new HyperHackintosh, runs really well. Not much delay
in doing anything! Although with web browsing now feels like it is waiting
for the "pipe" to catch up.

Strange thing with the system and Eclipse fonts though, they have a certain
"bitty/gritty" edge to them, not as smooth as the XP ones(!), not sure why,
may be a difference in DPI between Mac and PC displays? Or something else?
Any thoughts?

Based on

Parts from scan

Corsair Force 3 120GB SSD
CPU/COREi5/2500K - With Stock fan.
8GB 2x4GB CMX8GX3M2A1333C9
80mm Enermax UCTB8 T.B.Silence

Case is smallish and cheap, rig does not sound like a jet fighter, but would
not be suitable for recording! Plus it has not melted yet, which is
certainly a bonus... CPU is at 44 degrees C.
