Hello everyone,
i'm looking for buying hardware to built a New Hackintosh. I'm going to use it to edit full HD Raw in Final Cut, working in Davinci software and some After Effects, by now.
My preferred configuración today is this. ...

Intel i7 5820k
Asus z170 deluxe
Gigabyte GeForce 960 4gb
Samsung sm951 256gb M.2
Crucial Ballistix Elite 32gb
corsair rm750
Noctua nh-d15s

what do you Think? It will be my first time, so it will be very difficult? better options?
Thank you!!

As a new hack builder, I suggest you stick to a set of hardware outlined in the buyer's guide. Going with an x99 chipset on your first outing, given its limited support currently, will be a challenge.

+10 if you're really into challenges and have a lot of free time to do this then go for it. Installing El
Capitan on most X99 systems takes a lot of effort.
