Hackintosh PRO Build

Recommended Posts

Hello, hopefully I'm posting this topic in right place;)
In days i would like to build first Pro Hackintosh. 
I've selected those parts:
Intel Core i7-8700K 3.7GHz (Coffee Lake) Socket LGA1151 Processor
Samsung 960 EVO Polaris 250GB M.2 2280 PCI-e 3.0 x4 NVMe Solid State Drive
MSI GeForce GTX 1080Ti Gaming X OC 11264MB GDDR5X PCI-Express Graphics Card
Asus ROG Strix Z370-G Gaming Intel Z370 (Socket 1151) DDR4 Micro-ATX Motherboard
Noctua NH-U12DX i4 High Performance Intel Xeon CPU Cooler
Corsair RM Series RM650X '80+ Gold' 650W Modular Power Supply (CP-9020091-UK)
Seagate BarraCuda 3TB 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache HDD - OEM (ST3000DM008 )
Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut High Performance Thermal Paste - 1 Gramm
Kingston HyperX Predator 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 PC4-28800C17 3600MHz Dual Channel Kit (HX436C17PB3K2/16)
LG 24x DVDRW SATA Rewriter - OEM (GH24NSD0)
Monitor Dell U2515H
Could you advice me is everything all right with this setup? Should I change anything? I'm very unsure about ram, cooling system and power supply (is it good? powerful enough?). I can't find any decent PC Tower as well (looking for one with dust filter and 2x usb 3.1 ports on the top) on the overclockers.co.uk (I've choosen this website as they could assemble PC straight away and they got pretty decent prices).
Thanks for all responses!

For what kind of use?


I probably would save some money on the video card, in the case of Adobe Apps the higher end cards will make no diference.


And Nvidia cards needs Nvidia web drivers, very buggy. I think AMD cards are more compatible nowadays.


Probably RX Vega will be fully compatible because iMac Pro.


But the cheaper RX 580 needs only some kexts.
