I am using this system:

And I am looking to use Yosemite with it, I have been trying to get this working for about 3 months now, but no dice.

I watched this which looks promising:

But he spends half of it running integrated graphics, something that the GA-X99-UD4 doesn't even have, so that looks out of the question.

Anyone got any ideas on adding internet, graphics and audio support for this system?

Your wifi card is unsupported - remove it for the duration of the installation process. If you have a GPU that is natively supported in OS X Yosemite then use that to get up and running - it should also allow you to download the nVidia drivers to use the GTX 980. Other wise try using the bootflag nv_disable=1 at the Chimera screen.

X99 hardware will run using Yosemite - use this guide and read through the whole thread (yes its long -but there is some great advice and help from the community in this thread).

Set up your BIOS and use a single SSD in Sata port 0 on the motherboard to install OS X.
Your MultiBeast choices depend on the ethernet (LAN) and audio codecs that your motherboard uses.
