Your parts listed are fine and should work for Mountain Lion and Mavericks. The week item is the WD drive - you might get a Boot0 error using this, low poet drives don't work that well with traditional boot loaders. Give it a try though :thumbup:

I am connecting it to a 1600x900 screen.

Do not select the 1920x1080x32 option from that MultiBeast guide as it will not work with your monitor.
As long as you are connecting with DVI-D or HDMI then you will need to make the following change to your plist:

You will need to add this text:


<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>"1600x900x32"</string>
