    The gt 610 is not any where near a gaming card not even a low end one. The PSU is absolute crap. To my knowledge hackintosh requires an intel cpu. The system you have here is pretty much an office computer. Read this(http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/353572-31-build-upgra...) and post back and I bet we can get a better build.

    The motherboard already has a LAN port so you wont need to buy one. You might want to get 8gb of ram instead of 4gb just for some more flexibility. Maybe a cpu cooler can be an option inorder to overclock.

    I would suggest changing the CPU to something like a i5, getting more RAM like 8GB for gaming and Photoshop, Motherboard is up to you but something like a MSI Z77A-GD65 or anything on those lines and a for a GPU something like the MSI GTX 660i Power Edition or any 660ti. You might need a 600-650+ watt PSU

    Let me know your budget so we can adjust the parts accordingly.

    1st of all he config you listed is fine and is all parts should work okay with each other.
