As long as your components are listed in the Buyer's Guide, especially the motherboard (yours is) then you should be ok.

Thanks for you advice, so when building a hackintosh only the motherboard does metter?

That's not what I said at all! But the motherboard is the basis for the system, so if it isn't compatible, you don't have a very good start. Graphics cards are also very important, and just as important, all the parts you have must be compatible with each other. It's best to use RAM that's on your motherboard manufacturer's compatibility list, for example. A computer is a system made of many components (software included), and they all need to work together.
