I'm looking to create a Hackintosh with the following specs:


Processor: AMD FX-4100

Mobo: Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 (AMD 780G Chipset)

RAM: Transcend JM1333KLH-8G (x2)

Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series


Any assistance is greatly appreciated

If you check out the mavericks kernel testing on AMD thread in development you will see that amd support is improving a lot. However, you're probably better off spending a little bit more on an equally or better performing Intel processor like the i3-4130 (around $130). You can even get some quad core i5's for under 200. So yes, you should be able to run 10.8/10.9, but you'll save yourself a lot of trouble if you go with Intel. Look at the benchmarks and you'll see that there are Intel processors in the same price range that perform better. They may have less cores, but the hyperthreading helps a lot. If you already have the components, though, I have no doubt you will be able to get it up and running and mostly functional.
