I'm new and looking to build a new Hackintosh based on an AMD Ryzen. I would not use this machine for gaming what I will use it for is Photoshop and Lightroom. Data is primarily stored on a NAS I might add a secondary Disk later. Not sure if a M.2 drive is working with AMD Ryzen read some but nothing conclusive.


GPU not sure if the ones on Board are working but it should be enough to drive the system as I would not require it for rendering or any specific GPU tasks.


I'm not looking for a high end system nor an overly priced system. Biggest bang per Buck, and performance where needed (for me Memory)
