Finally made a decision to take the plunge. My hackintosh computer will be exclusively used for music production using Protools 11, Logic X, Ableton 9, and the UAD Apollo Quad interface. I would like to install OSX Yosemite.

After much research I've decided on the following:

[h=4]Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD7-TH[/h]
[h=4]Processor: Core i7-4790K[/h]
[h=4]RAM: (32gigs) Crucial Ballistix Elite 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) [/h]

[h=4]System Hardrive: Samsung 850 EVO SSD (500gigs) [/h]
[h=4]Hardrives: Seagate Barracuda (3 TB) 7200rpm[/h]
[h=4]Power Supply: Corsair RM750
[/h]
[h=4]Case: Fractal R4
[/h]
[h=4]Wifi card: TP-Link TL-WDN4800


Am I missing anything? Are these components going to yield a stable workstation for me? I really appreciate your help.

All your components are fine, they are all listed in the CustoMac Pro Guide.

I am assuming you will be using integrated graphics from the CPU since you did not pick a dedicated graphics card ? (If so, 750W PSU might be overkill unless you want room for future expandability )


Keyboard. Mouse ?? Cord or cordless ? You have no bluetooth if you want to use cordless...
