Hi All,

First time poster. Looking at building a Hackintosh/Windows 10 dual boot to replace my current mid 2011 iMac on its last legs (lead free solder is causing artifacts), and I want to avoid paying the apple tax for the new MBP or the midrange iMac.

I would appreciate your opinion on the build parts and whether you could give me the heads up if you've experienced issues with them.

Cheers!

Machine is to be used for Digital Design/Dev + home use (movies etc).

I don't think you will have any problems getting up and running with this hardware.
