Hi I'm thinking about updating my PC to a Hackintosh, would these parts be compatible?

i5 4590
Asus H97-Plus Socket 1150
8gb DDR3 1600mhz Corsair Vengeance LP

EVGA GTX670 2gb GDDR5
Kingston V300 SSD 240gb

If so what boot flags would I need to use during set-up.

Thanks :)

Welcome to the Forums.
Your motherboard and CPU are listed in the Buyer's Guide and will work. There are a quite a few builds with the GTX670 so you will have no trouble with that either. If you configure your BIOS correctly you may not have to use any bootflags. Its good practice to boot with -v (verbose). This enables you to see the loading of the OS and for any reason the installation stalls, take a picture and post it or search for it.

I've moved this thread to Desktop Compatibility. You will find it easier, if you go ahead with this build to move these system specs into your profile, it will save you writing them out when posting in different forums. If you require support post in appropriate desktop forum.

i have GTX 690

1. put all the part together without the GTX670, use the normal steps.
2.after installation complete and multibeast. download the Nvidia driver for the same version ( number like 10.10.4 or 10.10.5 )
3.install the driver Nvidia , then elect the driver function then select the Nvidia Web Driver, restart.
4. install the GTX 670 and connect everything

Same case in my build
