Hey everyone,
I'm going to be making my first hackintosh soon and I want to make sure that my parts are compatible with macOS.

Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor
Corsair H60 54.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
MSI Z170A GAMING M5 ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
Corsair Vengeance LED 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory
Samsung 850 EVO-Series 500GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
Seagate FireCuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Hybrid Internal Hard Drive
EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GB SC GAMING Video Card
DIYPC Gamemax-BK ATX Full Tower Case
EVGA SuperNOVA G2 550W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
TP-Link Archer T8E PCI-Express x1 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi Adapter
Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer

Side note: Does macOS support sound cards? I worth with Logic and I want the best sound possible.

Thanks a lot, I hope these are compatible since I didn't scrutinize the buying guide.

I don't know which other video cards will offer GTX 1060 levels of performance at a similar price range. Hopefully, the next version of the Nvidia web drivers will fix this issue.

Does macOS support m.2 SSDs as well? Or do hard drives not matter when it comes to Hackintosh compatibility?

And when would Nvidia update their drivers?

There is some stuff in the buyers guide, it looks like native NVMe support is on the horizon according to some press reports.

Allow nvidia 24 - 48 hours to update, test and make new drivers available for public download for the latest macOS updates.

So if nvidia is going to issue an update soon, is it worth getting the 1060?

Is this drive compatible?
LG - GH24NS95 DVD/CD Writer

And also, would the Seagate FireCuda SSHD hybrid drive mess with anything?
