Hi, I'm new here. I have been reading the forums for a month now without an account and i figure it's time to jump in the band wagon. My understanding of Hackintosh is far from complete but i can't wait to start getting hands on! Looking forward to interacting with this community
Here are the system parts i plan on getting my hands on.
Graphic Card: Zotac GTX 770 4GB or Palit GTX 770 Jetstream 4GB ( Because i can use full cover ekwb on it )
Motherboard: ASUS Z87 Sabertooth or Asus Maximus VI Formula ( Initially opted for GA-Z87X-HD3 but it's not available in my country )
Processor: i7 4771 ( Just 10 bucks more from 4770 so why not )
Power Supply: Corsair AX 860i
Memory: AVEXIR Core White 1866 2 x 8GB kit ( It glows ^^ )
SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 128GB
Storage: Western Digital Blue 1TB
Casing: Corsair Graphite 600T
Case mod: Corsair 600T Clear Window Panel by Mnpctech
And also I have a few questions,
- GPU: Is GTX760 4GB or GTX 770 4GB supported or will it cause any issues?
- SSD: I read that the Sandisk ones doesn't require TRIM being enabled but I'm not really sure what is TRIM though.
I heard that sandforce controllers are not really reliable, are there any alternatives that i can choose? I really like the Samsung 840 Pro after reading some reviews.
- MB: I know that by using Gigabyte motherboard noobs like me can have a smoother processes of setting things up but i don't really like Gigabyte. Why does the Gigabyte motherboards makes things easier?
Looking forward to your insights and guidance.
