I want to build cheap Hackintosh PC just to use Garage Band, Logic Pro X, etc.
I want to get Intel Pentium G4400 3.3GHz, 8GB DDR4 RAM and Gigabyte H110M-S2 motherboard, I already have a graphics card, power supply and HDD that I can use, Gigabyte GTX750Ti 2Gb WindForce OC, Gigabyte Hercules Pro 480W PSU and 500Gb Western Digital Caviar Blue 7200rpm.
Will these components be good for running OS X Sierra ?

Get an i3-6100 or i3-7100 instead and it will save you many hours of frustration trying to get it to work. There are no Pentium CPUs currently used in Apple Macs. No support.

Then fake the cpu id and whatever else it takes and hope and pray it still works if you ever want to upgrade to a newer version of macOS in the future.
