Hi guys,

I have been looking to build a hackintosh for a few months now and have been constantly updating and changing my ideal build.

Below is what I currently have in mind.

Motherboard: Gigabyte Z77X UD5H
Processor: Intel Core i5 3570K
RAM: 8GB Corsair DDR3
PSU: 650W Corsair Enthusiast Series
SSD: 60GB OCZ Agility 3 SSD
HDD: Already have a 2TB WD
Case: Corsair Carbide Series 400R


Can anyone tell me if this would be a suitable build for a first timer?
I am mainly worried about the motherboard as I cannot find it in the Motherboard database?

Also, can you tell me a good Bluetooth dongle that will work OOB in Lion and Mountain Lion?

Thanks in advance,
Richard

Everything looks good to me.

For BT dongles, please visit the "Wiki" in the Resources.

Thanks for the quick reply Mate94!
I will definitely check out the wiki for bluetooth dongles.

I do have one more question though....

Am I right in believing that because I am using ivy bridge, I will need to use bridge helper in order to boot Lion? (I currently have a USB stick with 10.7 installed using unibeast 1.5)
