Hi !

I am new to Hackintosh, and I wanted some advice on what I was considering purchasing. I decided to go for the CustoMac Budget ATX. My computer will strictly be for editing software such as Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere, and Avid. I would like the computer to run fairly quick and have little to no lag when using these softwares. I want to run these all on OS X Yosemite. Below is what I think (this is where I need advice) needs to be purchased. Can someone tell me if my 'shopping cart' is correct please?

My other questions are:

Do I need CPU Cooler? It wasn't listed, but I added it just in case it was accidentally left off. If this could be confirmed, that would be great.

Might be a redundant question, but the computer will be able to have wireless wifi with the card, yes?

Will these accessories create a computer with HDMI ports? I would need at least two because I want to work with two monitors.
