So after about 30-40 hours of researching parts today was the today I finally ordered the parts for my computer. Shoutout to Cameron Bates for his great assistance with everything and making sure I got everything that works together. People on reddit seemed to think it was ok and I checked a few of the mac forums. I’m probably not going to have all my parts for another few weeks but I’ll document it as it goes.

.
Aside from that there’s this great article about hackintoshes I’ve been looking at that discussed many of the parts I bought below. I’m probably going to try and base my build around that and see what happens. You can find the article here.
