how the hell do you edit with good results in motion final cut and the 8800GT?
I have built 3, working 24/7 almost a year. Editing, VFX, Motion Graphic....SD/HD/.

Is there a "definitive" list of components for the ultimate fast and bug free 'hackintosh?

Considering GPU, my recommendation is 8800 GT.
USB or Firewire audio interface would be also great (I have couple of M-Audio Fast Track)

Yes and NO. Tue most composting can be done on a *nix box. Depending on the program being used. Quantel uses win 2k for it's eQ and iQ. But as for editing there is no full featured professional solution for SD or HD. There are some editing application but with nowhere the capabilities of an Avid or FCP box. You don't cut movies in finishing boxes.
Smoke isn't exactly a "finishing box" only, to an extent it is but flint/flame + conform would fit that description more imho. More on the front of turnkey all-in-ones you have ifx Piranha (http://www.ifx.com/products/piranha) and even a Cinerella based turnkey (don't underestimate Cinerella) http://www.lmahd.com/cinelerra.html.
As far as compositing goes you won't get a lot more out of Apple/windows there either (shake, nuke, fusion flint/flame/inferno, houdini).. In terms of film work linux is already there, we'll see if it gets there in terms of TV/hd video stuff anytime soon though.
