I’m aware of that and that was my primary reason for wanting to do so. I have however installed Mojave after seeing my friend who does have a Mac, but it’s obviously incredibly slow.

AMD and Intel processors are not pin compatible, there is no way that you could put one in the other's socket.

The Rules said:
The methods and software on this site is not supported on AMD nor Atom CPUs. Desktop systems using chipsets from NVIDIA, ATI, VIA or SIS are also not supported. Any post requesting help for or asking about these will be deleted

I think that RM just forgot to change it to the .2 version when he updated it. You could still update Clover to a newer version on the USB. Try using one like 4586 from the Downloads > Clover builds section and see if that makes a difference.
figured it out and have a working Hackintosh. I had to completely wipe the destination HDD with MiniTool. still, have to do the SSDT, Bluetooth, and for some reason, the Wacom Intuos disappears once I touch the tablet with the stylus. It connects at first.

Would it be possible to install Mojave on these systems or would the latest compatible OS be High Sierra?

Possible but probably best to stay with High Sierra. If you have a 1050 Ti graphics card it won't work in Mojave anyway. No drivers from Nvidia. Mojave also requires at least an iMac 13,2 sysdef, 14,2 would be the better choice.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking since I've never done a Hackintosh build, thank you for your feedback. I don't have a low profile 1050ti either, I was thinking of using the 710 you listed since this build will only be used for web browsing and other light uses.

Why not just buy an HP 8300 ? They cost about the same and then you've got a CPU supported in Mojave.

I most likely will go with that, but I've been trying to find cheaper alternatives since I have a very slim budget for this. I'm planning on making it a gift once I have everything up and running successfully. I've been searching through Mercari and Ebay for cheap pre-builts and usually, the 6200 is about $20-40 less compared to the 8300.

The 8300 is less expensive if you can get one with an HD4000 CPU. Then you don't need to pay 40-50 for a GT 710. The HD 4000 graphics have full support in Mojave. Just get a cheap DP to HDMI adapter and that's all you need.

The i3-3225 works well and only costs about 30 USD on Ebay. You can also buy a barebones HP 8300 and install that.

Or just get one of these and replace the Pentium CPU with an i3-3225.
