Well you said hackintosh. If you want to go that route I would recommend reading up on hackintosh forums so you can pick out parts that are compatible/have drivers for the MAC os
This would be my 2nd Hackintosh. i asked here simply to get ideas for things that you dont have to worry about being compatible. the GA-Z77x-UD5H is what i was thinking of getting because of its compatibility. i just mentioned that it was a hackintosh in case anyone that might be a part of the hackintosh community was reading it and could suggest things that worked for them. I like the way that this forum works better for giving suggestions on parts better than tonymac.
