Since my old main system has kicked the bucket I mixed and matched my hackintosh and main system.
New Specs Intel D945GTP motherboard Intel Celeron D 3.46GHz (SSE3 supported) 4GB ram SATA 140GB hard drive Three IDE western digital 120GB hard drives (One is Firewire) Pioneer DVR-110d (connected via Firewire) Motorola USB bluetooth dongle RealTek 8139 10/100 nic (dual ethernet) ActionTec four port FireWire card Rosewill 450 watt power supply Compaq case (Haven't swap cases yet)
Since my motherboard only has one IDE channel I had to make my backup drive and DVD drive connect via firewire. I had one external unit but forced it to be dual channel by hacking up a extra IDE cable. Also since the circuit board for the IDE to firewire adapter is small and only uses 5 volts to power it I mounted it inside the case but I have a 5 foot long firewire cable bunched up in the case. Right now I'm checking out to see if any of my IDE PCI controller cards are compatible with OS X. I'm going to buy a copy of Leopard from ebay soon.
