CPU: i5-4570
Motherboard: z87-hd3
Ram: CT51264BA160B * 2
HDD: ST1000DM003
Video: gtx 650 palit or gtx 650ti MSI

And i want use Usb Wifi. Somethink like tp-link wn725n or tp-link wn722n

Will this PC and Wifi work on Mac OS 10.8 or 10.9?

This PC need for Xcode game developing. And I hear Apple demand minimal XCode 5.0 version. Is it true?

Thanks.

This build is perfect except for the USB Wifi. Gotta throw that out, theres almost no chance. You're better off buying a PCIe based WiFi adapter like the TP-Link PCI Express Wifi Adapter shown in TonyMacx86's latest CustoMac Accessories post:

And if you're using 10.8 or 10.9 I highly recommend xCode 5.1. The build you're using supports 10.9 Mavericks and it's free so why not stay up to date? It's available in the AppStore once you finish your Hackitosh.

Glhf and happy Hackintoshin'.

DougJS, thanks.
Local suppliers hasn't good choice of hardware, but I try to find Pci Express Wifi adapter (find videocard is hard too, Palit cards is everywhere). I what about Lan? Will z87-HD3 ethernet work on Mac OS

About development - game engine was created on XCode 4.3 and first I thought about Ivy-bridge build and using Mac OS 10.7. But then I heard - XCode 5.0 is minimal version for AppStore (Apple devepolres prove this info, please). If it's true then I will do this Haswell build and rewrite engine for 5.0
