Welcome to the forum! Enjoy the build process and do let us know how it goes. I generally recommend a 750W power supply with a discrete GPU and the built-in Thunderbolt circuit that can deliver up to 100W of power to connected devices, but your 650W supply should be okay to start with.
Will do! Thanks so much for your guide and continued support in this topic. Any idea on how I'd notice the need for a 750w psu? Thus far, I've been using the gpu mostly for w10 gaming on a spare sata ssd, and macos solely for logic pro x/day-to-day usage (i.e., email, documents through a w10 parallels machine, etc).
Just one more question, prior to getting started on all this: do you know of any (darkwake?) setting that doesn't wake the hackintosh from sleep after every key-touch/mouse-movement? Moving my wireless (logitech) keyboards/mice around whilst vacuuming made my a-sleep hackontish wake up. But I'd prefer a hard-power-button push (or perhaps two quick key presses?) to be the only way of waking up?
Also, my external midi keyboard has a powersaving auto-off function, meaning that after, let's say, 4 hours of inactivity, it shuts itself off, but my current build recognises this as a usb interaction, hence it wakes from sleep as soon as the keyboard turns itself off. If you have any advice, I'd love to hear.
Anyway, so very eager to get started on all this! Thanks again and I'll keep you informed.
