Description

I assembled this PC back in the Spring of 2015. I needed a machine that could handle the programs for my Mulitmedia degree, some gaming, and lots of video watching. The industry standard is a Mac, but as a college student those are waaaaaay too expensive. As such, my goal was to make something comparable to an iMac at a much friendlier budget.

Pretty sure that out performs any Mac on the market lol

Nah, my dad uses an imac retina that has a 3.5ghz i5, 16 gb of ddr3 ram, a 2gb radeon hd card and a 5k display.

U do realise that could mean a first gen i5 and one of the first video cards with 2gb of VRAM so ur point is bad unless u r more specific

They had 2gb gpus in 2009. The first i5 was released in 2010. But the first 5k Imac is from 2014. But with a pc you can upgrade to an i7 and a better gpu. Try upgrading an imac. I dare you. And that gpu is either an r9 m290x or m295 which are crappy cards. But since it only has 2gb it is probably the m290x. And the 270x is much better. So the only advantage the imac has is a higher resolution and more ram but both those can be upgraded with a bit of money and it would still be cheaper than an imac

aprofile Nullarc77 is right, 2gb GPUs came out in 2008

Nullarc you are right upgrading a mac can actually be deadly but What I'm saying is that his current build can be outperformed

I never said it can't be outperformed. But I am saying the gpu outperforms the imac if it is a first or even a second gen, Maybe even the third model. But due to the limiting factors of a hackintosh it is hard to build one with the best parts. Since the drivers for the Nvidia 10 series chips are still hard to configure it is better to go with a gpu that osx supports and has been optimized for, But only if you can get it for cheap.

aprofile. His point is not bad at all. He was stating facts about his dad's imac. And being that it is a 5k model, With 10 minutes of research like I did you can find the specs for the first one and all the ones since.

That is the whole point the cost is irrelevant in this conversation xD
