Hi all,

My Mac - an actual Apple iMac - just finally cracked it at me and is completely broke down and the moment, and I've been wanting to upgrade for quite a while. I've always been frustrated at Apple's lack of expandability without willingness to lay down over four grand so I've decided to embark on building my first PC, a Hackintosh.

I know extremely little about building any kind of PC at all, so it's going to be a learning process during the same time so please bear with me if possible. I've constructed a PC mainly from the Buyer's Guide. I think it's all compatible in regards to being a working PC, however I have no idea whether it will be able to run a DAW well, audio wise. I'll just be using a USB audio interface, a Fast Track Pro.

In a perfect world, I would have both OS X and Windows running on the two SSDs separately and using the other HDD for storage of samples.

Here are the parts:
Intel Core i7-6700K Processor
Corsair H60 Liquid CPU Cooler
Gigabyte GA-Z170X-Gaming 5 Motherboard
Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory
EVGA GeForce GTX 950 2GB Superclocked+ ACX 2.0 Video Card
Network Adapters:
TP-Link TL-WDN4800 802.11a/b/g/n PCI-Express x1 Wi-Fi Adapter
PC/HACKINTOSH - APPLE BROADCOM BCM94360CD - 802.11 A/B/G/N/AC + BLUETOOTH 4.0​
Samsung 850 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5" Solid State Drive X2
Seagate Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Corsair RM 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
Corsair Carbide Series 300R Windowed ATX Mid Tower Case

Thanks in advance,

Kedarchie
