i want to build my hackintosh specifically for final cut, logic, photoshop and general school work. I have a mid to high price range I know nothing about hardware and am dying to learn. I was recommended to get the MSI Z97 PC Mate and from what i can tell it seems perfect. I am just genuinely interested what does this do better/ worse than other ones, cheaper, more expensive and in the same price range as this mobo? I literally know nothing. Thank you!

If it's your first computer build to be designed for OS X installation then you'll
want to start with a Gigabyte mainboard. Watch this video for instructions on
how to choose parts for an Intel system. http://youtu.be/VIF43-0mDk4?t=5m22s

I agree, gigabyte boards are best for beginners :]
