I left that HP 8300 with my hackintosh expert yesterday, and apparently he got it running in less than an hour. 3.4 GHz of i7 powaaah running El Capitan. Allegedly it’s a real screamer, even with the stock on-board video. That would probably be sufficient, but I also want to use it as a windoze gaming machine, so a new video card will be added next payday. I can’t wait to give it a try - I’ve waited a long time for a faster Mac and I can’t believe the day has finally come.

I still need to have a decent genuine Apple machine for upgrades and such, but I’ll be OK in the mean time...
