Hi everyone,
I'm thinking on building a new hackintosh and I was thinking on buying the next components:
  • CPU: Intel i5 4460
  • Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97-D3H
  • RAM: Crucial Ballistic Sport 8gb 1600MHz
  • GPU: for the moment the integrated one. A GTX 960 in the future.
  • HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB
So, what do you think? Will this work? I accept all kind of sugestions. Thanks

Yes, if it's in the Buyer's Guide and you follow the detailed Unibeast/Multibeast directions (Guides)
the chances of success are enormous. Find and read User/Golden Builds guides that use the
same hardware for more info on the install process. Search is your best friend.

The GA-H97M-D3H model at Amazon.com is more than 25 USD less and works well too.

Since you can't overclock an I5-4460 you won't need the Z version boards. So why not
save some money and only lose features that you won't use anyway ?

Click through the links in the Buyer's Guide for the exact models.
