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.
