I planning to build a CustoMac Budget ATX for my self.
The main purpose of using this hackintosh will be to be able to use Logic Pro X/Ableton live/FL Studio or any other DAW(Digital Audio Workstation).
Here my question is do I really need to install a graphics card in CustoMac Budget ATX?

Any help would be appreciated.

The on-board graphics (HD 530) has some display problems, so an inexpensive, supported graphics card is not a bad idea.
See the threads in the Graphics forum section for more information.

Can you suggest the cheapest graphic card for Gigabyte GA-Z170-HD3 with
Core i3-6100?

See if you can find a used GT 640. It doesn't require the Nvidia drivers and should be supported out of the box. Pick one w/o a VGA connector; EVGA or Gigabyte are good brands.

Please suggest me a build under $400.
I will be using a 40 inch led thru HDMI.
Thank you.
