I just ordered all of this through Newegg. I did my research, and all of the parts seem to be on the buyers guide, except the graphics card. Does anyone have any tips to help make the installation easier, or any tips for boot flags or kernel extensions?

Motherboard: Gigabyte Z97X-SLI
Processor: Intel Core i5 4690K
GPU: Gigabyte N740D5OC-2GI
RAM: 8 Gigabytes HyperX Savage DDR3 1600
Boot Drive: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 60GB SSD SATA 3
HDD: HSGT Travelstar 750GB (I got it out of my laptop when I replaced it with a SSD, it has already been wiped)
Wi-Fi Card: TP-LINK TL-WDN4800
PSU: Rosewill Stallion RD700-M
Case: Thermaltake Versa H24 with Window

I am pretty sure that this board has been used by several forum members. put the model number into 'Search' and see what they used to install OS X. Maxwell cards are quite common. I suggest installing using the onboard HD4600, download the drivers before adding the GPU into the build.

Stork has also done a number of good guides that can be used as a basis for installation using Haswell hardware:
