I also was wondering about the HD's. I didn't choose the exact ones from the tonymac list because they were Seagate Barricudas and I have heard better things about WD. Is that ok? Here's the list:

CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor 
Mobo: GigabyteGA-Z77X-UP5-TH 
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LP 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory 
Boot Drive: Samsung 840 Series 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk 
Storage Drive: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive 
Storage Drive: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive 
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GT 640 2GB Video Card 
Case: Fractal Design Define R4 (Black Pearl) ATX Mid Tower Case 
Optical Drive: Sony AD-7280S-0B DVD/CD Writer 
Monitor: Asus VS229H-P 21.5" Monitor 
PSU: Corsair Enthusiast Series CP-9020039-NA650W ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular High Performance Power Supply
Operating System: OS X 10.8

I plan to use this computer in my studio for audio work. I also plan on getting an additional monitor down the road so I opted for a GPU. It's based closely on one of the golden builds from tonymac which I think is "Studio 2.0" but I do have a few changes so I was just wondering if it looked alright by everyone.

Thanks so much.

P.S. Would the USB dongle from Logitech work with a Hackintosh? It works fine with my Macbook Pro so I would assume so, but I never know. Thanks.
