Hello friends!

I would love to hear some opinions about a Hackintosh build I'm assembling! This is my first Hackintosh build, and I am looking for some pro opinions before I start purchasing hardware.

This computer will be used in editing 4K videos using Adobe Premier Pro, After Effects, And Photoshop.

The specs I considered:

CPU: Intel Core i7 6700K / 1151 / 4 GHz
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15
Motherboard: Asus Z170-A
GPU: Gigabyte GTX980 Ti GV-N98TWF3OC-6GD Retail
RAM: Corsair DDR 4 16G/3000 CMK16GX4M1B3000C15
SSD: Samsung SSD EVO 850 250GB
PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 750 P2, 80+ PLATINUM 750W
Case: NZXT H440


My current workstation is a 2011 iMac, and I have little experience in Hackintosh or custom builds.
I will appreciate any advice!

Thank you!
Eyal

Looks like a good start. I would go with a 32 GB ram kit right away. A 250 GB SSD won't get you very far in the photo/video editing arena. Are you planning on using old 2-3 TB HDDs for storage ? I would also add another SSD as a scratch disk as well.
