This build should be compatible with MacOS High Sierra and above.

I use my main system to run MacOS Sierra 10.12.6 / High Sierra / Mojave / Catalina.

For a new system like this you should definitely use a SSD as a boot drive at least.
Hey man,
Do you think that I get install the Big Sur with that build?
Thanks a lot!

Yeah. Everything looks fine. Please see post #3 on my Z390 M Gaming thread for info about wi-fi/Bluetooth card.

I would definitely go for SSD instead of HDD.

I expressed myself wrong.
At the moment what version MacOS are you using? (High Sierra, Catalina, etc)
The question is, that machine that I'm building would be able to run MacOS Big Sur?

Thanks!

Assuming you have a supported video card, everything from El Capitan to Big Sur can work. If you want to use one of the older versions of macOS, it may be necessary to spoof older CPUs.

I'd like to ask an advice please,
About the SSD, I'm a mixing and mastering enginner, therefore I'm thinking to buy 1 SSD 480GB to run the system, 1 Tb to Pro Tools' projects and another of 480GB if I need. Do you think a good ideia? And about the connection M2 what would you do?

Thanks in advanced!

I don't know anything about Pro Tools or how it works... But I always like my OS on the fastest drive possible.
