I'm looking to build a new digital audio workstation and am looking at the following spec. Could someone tell me if I should be looking at different hardware, or will this be an easy install?

I was looking to use Kakewalk for the installation along with my OSX disc...


Any thoughts? Will I need [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 2.0 as well as this?


I'm an absolute noob at Hackintosh world, I've lurked for the last six months, and used this link as a guideline as I'd like it to do Software updates etc:
