Runs very well. You can check out my longer-than-necessary and horribly lame video showing my Hackintosh in action (that was with an 8800GT).

Only problem I have now is that my computer won't wake up if it falls asleep... But that's OK, I feel the same way
@ previdman : if it makes you feel any better, I'm considering "upgrading" to something like this ...
Krewcial. How much did your set up in the picture cost? That is SWEET.
Worked with an HV20 at my halftime job (making corporate videos), bought myself an HV30 last October, shot my first video one week later and got myself a Jag35Pro and SP with my first job's income. Got a few Canon FD lenses and that's about it.
I come from an audio background (still am making music actually), which explains the mixing console and the outboard (not visible in the pics, various stuff from Ensoniq, Lexicon, TL Audio, Akai samplers, reel to reel, mics, ...).
I just finished working on my 3rd movie soundtrack (as a composer), will be doing the making of the next movie from the same director after he saw some of my videowork.
A selection of some of my stuff is on www.vimeo.com/krewcial
My latest "summer" setup, since I no longer need everything to be in one room for heating purposes (I have a portable heater only here).
I have my own computer room again . Too bad my desk is still lame
Hey MithrilFox, what method did you use to instal OSX on your hardware? Your video said that you didn't use a patch, so how did you do it?
It's incredibly simple and gave me less trouble than the last time I tried to install Vista, no joke .
Here's the tutorial I followed:
Alright here is my setup. The main monitor is a Dell, the other is a crappy Lextron from BJ's that I only use for things that don't require color fidelity. Then there are the three Altec Lansing speakers (w/subwoofer). I did clean up, usually this area is covered in junk
Here's a view where you can see the HDDs, one is a 500GB USB, the other (on the right) is 1TB eSATA. Which has been pissing me off recently, because the bitrate is the same as the USB drive. The headphones there are wireless and oh-so-nice when the TV is on in the background.
Of course I won't be able to take any of that stuff with me to college next year (minus the 1TB HDD maybe), but it's okay because I'm all set up on my DV7-1285dx seen here:
And just to show off my mad photography skillz,

krewcial how do you like the powermate for editing?
We had one at my old job but I found it awkward to use for final cut, if you spin it too fast it keeps on going after you spin it, wasn't the response I was hoping for.
So, Ive been thinking about building a professional editing desk and so I wanted to see what anyone has been using and has had success with. I like the look of this one but I'm not crazy over the $2500 price tag.
I'm pretty skilled in carpentry/woodworking so making something similar to this would be easy for me to do. I would just like some feedback from everyone about what they do/do not like about their editing stations. Any info would be greatly appreciated as I plan on building one soon and would like to incorporate a few of your ideas. Thanks
I built mine in a shallow closet using a $25 door, 12' of 1x12 lumber,and some L brackets. Total Cost: Under $60.00
Ok, so can anyone tell me what the heck is all the stuff this guy has in his desk? Is all of this necessary? I can see how the speakers, keyboard, and soundboard would come in handy but what is all that other stuff? I recognize the sushi of course
HEY HERES MINE... REALLY MESSY GOTTA CLEAN TOMARRO
I see a signal processor, amplifier, patch bay, some kind of dubbing deck, cordless phone, alcohol...
