I currently considering to build a home media pc that will mainly be used to play movies , music and low end games on my hdtv . Before i actually go out to buy the components i just wanted to double check if the following components would work with mac osx .

Motherboard : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128567
Processor : http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116774
Case : http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=32938&vpn=MI-008&manufacture=Apex Computer Technology&promoid=1469
Ram : http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=57079&vpn=CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9&manufacture=Corsair
Hardrive : 1TB seagate hardrive that i already have

Oh and would the optical audio out on the motherboard work with OSX ?

Yes, optical audio will work. All of your parts are in the buyer's guide so it's :thumbup:

For setting up the bio i plan on using a old PS2 keyboard to setup the bios ;But when in the OS i plan on using a apple wireless keyboard and mouse , so will the Mac osx installer recognize the keyboard/mouse and would it be possible to use the keyboard and mouse with the bootloader .

Until you've run multibeast and installed all needed kexts, your guess is as good as mine whether
the bluetooth will work. Have a wired usb keyboard handy if you need to use that for the install.

I'm pretty sure the IOGear GBU521 BT dongle would work out of box as I've used that instead of the
mini PCI E Wifi BT card that comes with that board.
