What card do you suggest
I just did this build with a Radeon Vega 64 and it worked out of the box. I haven’t tried any games (other than borderlands 2, which was great) so I can’t help there but maybe worth considering. This was my first ever Hackintosh and it went so smoothly, following the info in this thread! (Thanks @MacMan and @Ledfoot btw)

The WiFi and Bluetooth only works in Windows as far as I know. There are tons of posts you can search for more specifics about the other gear. Good luck.

Good morning. I'm about to buy my first components for a hackintosh. This guide is good for the ROG STRIX Z390-E GAMING motherboard? Thank you.

Hi all, I'm stuck and need some help. not my first hack, but my first UEFI.
At F8 boot selection time, i'm choosing the UEFI on my USB stick. boot hangs; never get to the Apple.
Added -Verbose and it stops as shown in the attached picture.
I *think* I've done everything right, but obviously something is wrong.
I've attached the EFI folder from the USB Stick as well. I believe the configuration is correct my signature.
Thanks!
Tom

I had a problem getting my usb to boot and it wasn't until the third one I made that I realised disk utility wasn't making a GUID partition. Am not sure if that will help, otherwise I have no suggestions.
