    Apple Previews macOS 11.0 Big Sur - Available Fall 2020

    MacOS is not important anymore. With Windows 10 including Linux Subsystem support it's the way to go. I don't use MacOS as my main anymore, I only use macOS for light duty computing. Apple is all about control, they want to control everything that runs on their hardware and keep every dollar...

    Hardware combination with the simplest install procedure ?

    It sounds pretty obvious your system profile selected is not close to your setup. I would pick imac 14,2.

    Hardware combination with the simplest install procedure ?

    Gigabyte z87x-d3h, with a 4770 CPU or 4670. I could do it in my sleep. Simple install with Unibeast and the audio, video, and network all easily handled with Multibeast. You can upgrade to a Haswell 4790k. I don't think there's such thing as future proof. It will get alteast 5+ years of OSX...

    Need a reliable new Hackintosh

    There really no such thing as a "reliable" hackintosh. There always will be some issue one day that you need to manage. If you don't have the stomach to deal with simple troubleshooting don't build a hack. Plenty of cheap reliable used Macs on ebay.

    Video Card Options for Hackintosh

    I got myself a GT 640 for like $30, native support for all OSX since Mavericks, no need ever to install drivers.

    Intel i9 Processors and iMac Pro

    What Apple shown was Skylake X, not I9 CPUs. I'm rocking dual 8 core Xenon CPUs that works easily without much effort for 1/2 the price of any Skylake or Kabylake setups. Why bother with the latest and greatest PC masters race. Compatibility > raw performance.

    Don't have a mother board or processor yet-- what's the best route for USB type C and Thunderbolt 3?

    Consider Apple's USB implementation is more proprietary than Windows, it won't be easy to get full native USB-C working without some hacking. You can forget about TB3 for now because Apple's TB driver is much different than Windows. I love using TB on a Mac but I hate using it on a Hackintosh...

    New Mac Pro's, iMacs and Apple Displays

    ECC is a negative because, it will cost more and higher latency. When's the last time memory ever died on a server while it's powered? ECC is highly overrated.

    UniBeast: Install macOS Sierra on Any Supported Intel-based PC

    There's no native support for Kaby Lake CPUs, means that you will run into issues and have to use Safe mode until you have a proper custom DSDT file for the CPU. So right there I don't think you will have success easily. 2nd, you mention Boot OSX from USB. If you read the Guide here, then...

    UniBeast: Install macOS Sierra on Any Supported Intel-based PC

    Need more info on the hardware, CPU and motherboard model. If you have a dedicated video card it is not a good idea for a new install and someone without experience. Use the Intel integrated video to install OSX and later you can put the video card in when you have a working system.

    Workstation with 8 monitor outputs ?

    I've had AMD GPU with 4 video outputs all Displayport, assuming they all work. It will only take 2 cards to get 8 outputs. Many of the 280X, 390X have 4 ports and you can run in pairs assuming you get a motherboard that can fit 2-3 full size cards.

    Six Sata ports Not enough

    So much easier to get a Synology 8 bay NAS server and put all your drives in it and create shared folders on the network. So easy to upgrade drives on a NAS too. The OP should invest in moving your data out of local drives. You have no data loss prevention. If either of your drive dies you...

    Which GPU?

    http://www.fcp.co/forum/hardware/18250-brucex-try-this-new-final-cut-pro-x-benchmark?start=440 Take a look at this and see the most recent messages. You can buy AMD R9 280X that beats Nvidia 980GTX Ti.

    Which GPU?

    For FCPX, Nvidia are not the best cards. AMD based cards better, heck even an old HD7970 does FCPX better than most of newer Nvidia cards. The more video ram the better too.

    2 x EVGA GTX 980 SC Dual Gpu

    OSX can have multiple graphics cards but it doesn't really do much good other than giving you more video ports. Very few OSX apps can use multi-GPU and I don't think FCPX is multi-GPU aware. Adobe Premiere can.
