I have never built a computer before, but I intend to build a Hackintosh. I am attempting to educate myself and have done some research, but because I have used pre-built Macs for the majority of my life I don't know as much as a lot of more experienced users.

What peripherals are unlikely to be compatible with Hackintosh systems? I will need to purchase a monitor, a keyboard and a mouse that work, and I already have a Wacom tablet that I would like to continue to use.

  • "Most standard bits of hardware work just fine."
  • "Apple accessories…work just fine."
  • "Anything that works with a real Mac will work with a Hack."

My course of action:

  • Bought an ASUS VS Series VS238H-P monitor.
  • Bought a SteelSeries Kana Optical Gaming Mouse.
  • Bought a Kensington K72357US Slim Type USB Keyboard.

Jury is still out on this course of action.


I will be editing this initial post to include summaries of your answers. This will make it easy for me to refer to it.

Most standard bits of hardware work just fine. If you have Apple accessories they'll work just fine and anything that works with a real Mac will work with a Hack.

Thank you very much! That solves the issue entirely.
