History shows that Gigabyte Motherboards are the easiest to get working. I am in the same boat as you, the last thing we want to do is spend this type of cash on a system that doesn't work. Hackintoshing takes extensive research. My research shows that the Gigabyte Z390-UD may not be the best board for the i9 9900K across the board. I have settled on the Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro. Offering improved VRM thermal design and so I believe better power delivery should maximise the performance of the i9 9900K. Also there is a more comprehensive vanilla guide on another forum.
In terms of the GPU, for the RX 590 it appears that the Powercolor and the Sapphire Nitro+ are the only working models. The GPU is a concern for me as I can only get Asus and XFX cards. It is possible to flash the VBIOS however I have not done this before.
There is a inherent risk when it comes to hackintoshing, the level of risk you take is determined by the amount of research you do. I may take a risk on the Asus Vega 64 or I may look at flashing a 590 XFX.
XFX Radeon Rx Vega 56 8GB 3xDP HDMI Graphic Cards RX-VEGMLBFX6 is on the buyers guide, it is a single fan blower.
