Hi guys. I want to build my first hackintosh machine. I watched some post about buying advice, but my configuration has never been nominated in any post. I am undecided between two possible configuration:

This is the first one:

Motherboard: Asus Z370-Prime

Processor: Intel i3-8350K

Graphic card: integrated Intel UHD 630 Graphics OR Asus GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB

RAM: Kingston 8 GB DDR4 at 2133 MHz

SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 250 GB

Hard Disk: WD Blue 1TB

Power supply: Corsair CX550 (550W)

And this is the second one:

Motherboard: Asus H270-Prime OR Asus Z370-Prime

Processor: Intel i5-7500

Graphic card: Asus GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB

RAM: Kingston 8 GB DDR4 at 2133 MHz

SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 250 GB

Hard Disk: WD Blue 1TB

Power supply: Corsair CX550 (550W)

And the case will be in both cases a Corsair Carbide 100R

Do you think that those configuration will be both hackintoshable? And do you think that I can do a triple boot between Windows 10 Home, MacOS High Sierra and Linux Fedora 27?

I think so, but I want another confirm from the wonderful TonyMacX86's community.

If I may have trouble in the installation of MacOS, what type of components do you suggest to change?

Thank for replies in advance.

Have a nice day

I agree that both should work. You can use Sierra or High Sierra for the second build, but only High Sierra for the first build.

Thank you very much. I think that I will assemble the second configuration, I do not need Sierra on my machine.
