Im new here, had a look around the website and i hope I am posting in the right place.

My dad needs a new windows PC and I was hoping to assemble the right machine to be able to use it as an hackintosh too.

I have a graphic card and a cpu that i own already and would like to use. These are the components I was about to buy but i was hoping that somebody could tell me if they would all work together and are compatible with hackintosh, or please suggest something equivalent if it not. 

also could you please direct me to the right articles/guide on what to do ? 


gtx 970 graphic card i own already.

ryzen 5 1600/1600x  cpu i own already 


i was about to buy : 

evga 450 br bronze 450w power supply

mz-76e250 evo ssd 250 sata hard drive

corsair vengeance lpx 32gb ddr4 3200mhz ram

gygabyte b450 aorus m motherboard realtek gbe

Hi and welcome, I too have just joined.

FWIW I had an AMD Hackintosh and it was a right pain, I could get it up and running OK, but the apps that I use did not like the CPU.

If you are doing anything with Adobe CC then I would suggest to start building an Intel Hack. That is what I am doing today and selling on my Ryzen CPU and motherboard.
