New CustoMac Pro need advice please!

Hello to all of you!
I am new to Hackintosh but after A LOT OF READING this forum i chose these material:

CPU: Intel Core i7-3930K
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5
RAM: Corsair CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9 16GB 1600MHz CL9 DDR3 Vengeance Memory Four Module Kit timing 9-9-9-24
Power Supply: Corsair HX750 Professional Series HX 750W ATX/EPS Modular 80 PLUS Gold PSU
Graphics Card: Gigabyte GTX670 2GB N670OC-2GD (overclocked version)
Hard Disk: 2x SANDISK EXTREME 120GB SSD 2.5'' SATA3
Case: CORSAIR CC-9011013-WW CARBIDE SERIES 500R MID-TOWER BLACK/WHITE
CPU Cooler: NOCTUA NH-U9B SE2 ή Corsair CPU Cooler Hydro H100i


I need your advise in 2 things please:
1) can i use any newer (and probably better) motherboard that the specific Gigabyte? Will any of the new ASUS motherboards work?
2) do you think i will reliably run mountain lion and final cut pro, logic pro without problems?

Thank you all in advance!

You can find builds on this forum using the ASUS Sabertooth X79 and the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme.

X79 systems are certainly just as stable as LGA1155 systems. The X79 is just a bit more work to get installed and working properly.
