I am making a Hackintosh for mostly video editing in fcpx and some photo editing in photoshop and lightroom. Heres the list of parts I was thinking:

cpu: Intel Core i7-4790K
motherboard: Z170M Mortar
gpu: XFX RADEON RX 480 8GB
ram: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4 3000 C15
ssd: Samsung 850 EVO 500GB
hard drive: WD Blue 4TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive
psu: Corsair CX Series, CX750, 750 Watt

Please let me know what you think and weather or not there are better parts for around the same price range.

Hello griffink,
The parts you picked are incompatible. The Intel i7-4790k is LGA 1150. The motherboard is a LGA 1151. You can go with an Intel i7-6700K.. Memory should be fine. Im not really familiar with the GPU on FCPX but from what I've read you do need an AMD GPU for better results. I believe the RX 480 has issues on OS X. The R9 280X should be more compatible. Please read this:
Radeon Compatibility Guide - ATI/AMD Graphics Cards

Good Luck.
