Hey guys,

hope you are all doing well on this Sunday!

So, here it is, my first post!
I'm new to the hackintosh stuff and a little confused.
I read a lot of different stuff like " have to use this or that..." but everybody is mentioning something different.
That's why I thought asking you for advice.

Following are my specs on my current system:

- Intel i5 4670K
- 8 GB of Corsair XMS3 (2x4gb)
- 1000 GB Seagate Barracuda 7200 RPM
- MSI 7816 Z87 G43
- MSI GTX 560 ti

All in a cooler master haf xb with a lot of noctua coolers.
The system runs awesome with WIN 7.
But here is the problem: it runs Windows 7.
I want it to run Mac OS!
Is this possible?
I can't find the motherboard or the GPU on your recommended list...
I'm planing on getting an SSD anyway so this is pretty much safe and should help the system big time.

So as far as I understand it there are two options right now:

1st: It's fine and I can get started
2nd: I'm screwed and have to put a lot of money in the motherboard and GPU.

Right? If 2nd, what motherboard and GPU would you recommend? I would love to have at least comparable graphics as I have right now... But I'm on a budget! Cheaper is better for me right now.

I want to apologize for my bad English beforehand, I'm from Germany and have only very little opportunity to speak / write in English.

Thank you so much for your help and answers in advance!

Cheers guys!
