7900GTX Hacked to Quadra FX5500
I recently built myself another Hackint0sh system, my 7th if I recall correctly.
This time I picked up a cheap system off of Craigslist. I wasn’t happy with the ATI card used in the system so I picked up a ASUS EN7900GTX King King Edition PCI-e Video Card.
It turned out to have more issues then the ATI card, so rather then buying a new card, I decided to use one of Aqua-macs rom files to flash the card to something more compatible.
The rom I used was “POV 7900 GTX 512 PCIe to Nvidia Quadro FX 5500 512 Modified Rom For Hackintosh OSX 86”. It works great! No issues whatsoever.
For those unfamiliar with the Quadra series, the FX5500 is a $3,000 Card.
