I’m a MacBook pro user for almost 15 years and I’m looking to build my first hackintosh desktop computer.

I’ve about €2000,- to spend on the system and I’m mainly working with Ableton Live 10 and ocasionally with After Effects, Sketch and Photoshop.

Can some experienced hackintosh builders give me some advise on what hardware to buy?

Good luck! I might do the same asap

Thanks! I've placed the order yesterday with a minor change in hardware. I bought just one "Samsung 860 Pro 1tb". My system SSD is going to be the "Samsung 970 Pro 1tb" AM2 card.

I'll update this tread or just start a new tread with all my findings.
