Hello Guys, this is my upcoming build.
I am going to customize a duo-boot Hackintosh. 2 SSD for the operating systems. HDDs for the data as well as TimeMachine.
At listed I have two questions I wanna ask.
Any suggestions will help.
Thanks!



Components:
• SSD1 120G OS X System
• SSD2 120G Windows System
• WD Blue 1T OS X File
• WD Black 1T Windows File
• WD Green 2T OS X TimeMachine


Preparation Work:
2 Questions:
• I have 2 hard disks avail for OS X , 1 is SSD the other one is 1TB Blue drive, if I use a 2TB timemachine, is it gonna back up both and also, how to set it up??


• In the future if I wanna upgrade my GPU, how does it gonna affect my system??? Rebuild??? Both partitions???

Both will be backed up unless you do make exclusions. You can set it up using the 'Time Machine' control panel in System Preferences

• In the future if I wanna upgrade my GPU, how does it gonna affect my system??? Rebuild??? Both partitions???
You should not need to rebuild, probably install some drivers but it would help knowing which GPU you plan to use initially

Thanks for the reply!
I am gonna use my GTX 660 as my GPU for the upcoming Hackintosh project.
Btw. It is powerful enough to do some 1080p video editing and rendering in Unreal Engine 4 ?
