Cheap hackintosh build (Under £300)

I have read around and designed a build with some parts so I can build a hackintosh, and take some parts from my current build to save some cash. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/ikrumpz/saved/hrQJ7P Heres what I have so far, but keep in mind ive got and HDD SSD PSU RAM and a PSU so all thats new is the mobo and cpu. Would this work for hackintosh? If not, can somebody design me one under £300 which can run photoshop and maybe after effect s or final cut pro?

Thanks

Harvey

The list you have should work. I'd go with the i3-4170 instead since it's a stronger processor at a much cheaper price but is still fully compatible with the listed mobo right out of the box.

Ah right okay thanks :) Also do you know of any tutorials which will work on how to setup a hackintosh? I've done it before but on AMD, not Intel. Is it easier?

Cheers

I personally have no experience with setting up hackintosh. I've only ever loaded Windows on a computer. Not sure if it would be helpful to you, but here's a forum topic about setting up Macintosh on a similar setup: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/293709-gigabyte-ga-b85-hd3-lga1150-success-dantes-customac/
