Hi,

I'm a long time Mac user , but after years I decided to build a windows pc .
Specs:

i7 7700K
Asus Z270
16GB Ram Vengeance Lpx 3000hmz (it was cheap)
Noctua ns-h15
Eva Supernova G2 PSU
Fractial R5 Case
& SSD 500gb ( I got another 250gb ssd but it isn't installed yet)

If not much asking, will this build works fine for a hackintosh? I use this pc just for producing music and not gaming. And if it works, can you please send me links (steps for steps ) or can you tell me how I can install Mac and make it work on this build? I'm not a geek :c I think I spent all my time making music :c

Thank you very much !

What is your motherboard's full model number? See the tonymacx86 Buyer's Guide for more information (in menu at top of this page).

Since the ASUS Prime Z270-A is in the Buyer's Guide, the drivers/kexts are supported in MultiBeast for Sierra. Since you're using the on-board video (I didn't see a graphics card listed in Post #1), pay attention in the installation guide using on-board graphics installation. There is also a HD 630 graphics thread in the Graphics forum section.

This build description might be of some help, but it uses a graphics card.

Hi,

And do you know the cheapest gpu I can buy for hackintosh compatibility and with the mobo? I'm not going to be gaming or video/photo editing with the build.

If you want a new card, look to the Buyer's Guide, Graphics cards section. I prefer Gigabyte graphics cards with EVGA as a 2nd choice. The Gigabyte GTX 1050 is $120 at Amazon. You will need to use the Nivida drivers for the GTX 10x0 series cards.

You can find used cards on eBay. I've gotten several used cards from eBay at good prices. I have a Gigabyte GTX 760 which is natively supported by macOS Sierra.

Good luck!

I have the Gigabyte GTX 1050 2GB with dual fans. A really nice card. Runs cool and quiet. Much of the time the fans don't even spin up. Would work well for music production.
