Dear Community

I am very interested to build a powerful Mac based on standard Hardware.
I am looking forward to getting feedback and optimization tips from you, as well if the Hardware will be compatible with latest macOS.
I know, there are better parts than my choice, but I like to keep the price to about 1500$ and it must be available in Switzerland.

MoBo:
AsRock Z270 Supercarrier (TH 3 Chip onboard)

CPU:
Core i5 7600K
alternative Core i7 7700K

RAM:
Kingston HyperX Fury (2x8GB, DDR4-2133, DIMM 288)

SSD (for OS):
Samsung 850 Pro 256GB 2.5"
WD red 2TB 3.5"

GraficCard:
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Windforce 4GB

PowerSupply:
Enermax Revolutiion X'T II 750W, Gold certificate

(I know CPU cooler is missing, but i guess this component does not matter :) )


Thank you for any response

This build should be compatible with MacOS Sierra 10.12.6 and High Sierra.

Thank you James :)

Another question, does it really matters which supplier I choose for GeForce GTX 1050 Ti cards, such as Gigabyte, MSI, Asus and so on?
I guess the drivers are from Nvidia itself.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

As far as I can see, there has been no indication so far that Nvidia cards from any manufacturer cause significant issues on hackintoshes, so I would say that it does not matter very much. If you are worried about this then choose cards from the Buyer's Guide.
