Hey folks! I need Hackintosh for music production. I will use Ableton, Logic & firewire soundcard.

So, I have few questions:

1.Is this setup is good and fully compatible with Mac OS?

CPU: Intel Core i7-3930K - preview
MOTHERBOARD: ASUS Sabertooth X79 - preview
MEMORY: Corsair XMS3 16GB - preview
GPU: need advice - EVGA?
POWER: NZXT Hale Power 90 - preview
CPU COOLER: NZXT KRAKEN X60 - preview
SSD: need advice - OCZ Vertex - 1x 256GB
HDD: need advice - Seagate? 2x 1TB
CASE: don't know yet

wifi card?

firewire card? - Texas Intstruments

Did i miss something?

2. Is there a cheaper & a better way for setup like this?

Thanks!

For Music production you can save a lot of money by going with a Z77 build like BoomR's.
X79 is great for servers and professional high end video production but for audio/music you can
do really well with a build like the following.

Go to the OP (post #1) of the thread to read about how he built his.
