Does anyone have any advice on a reliable Hackintosh build that supports dual monitors? After reading a few threads about people having trouble I have grown a little hesitant on purchasing my parts. For example:

The only parts I have already are the monitors and a 760W power supply. I have 2 Dell U2412M monitors. It is worth noting that these monitors do not have HDMI. They come with the following connections:

1 Digital Visual Interface connectors (DVI-D) with HDCP
1 DisplayPort(DP)
1 Video Graphics Array (VGA)

These are the parts I am think of using, but I am very open to suggestions. (These come from the December Customac Budget ATX list).

Intel Core i5-4430
GA-H87-D3H
16GB 1600Mhz DDR3
SanDisk Extreme SSD 120 GB
TP-Link PCI Express
Wifi Adapter


Thanks for reading,

Given the display connectors and using the board/CPU gfx instead of a discrete gfx card, I would try to find a board that has DVI and DP connections to match the displays, thus eliminating the need for an adapter.
