I need a gaming pc that is both compatible with windows 10 and the latest mac os. It will duo boot both softwares. When you turn it on you will be able to pick either mac of windows. Please don't post if you don't know what your doing because many parts are not compatible with mac os and it may loose me a lot of money. The pc needs to be powerful enough to run battlefield 4, just cause 3, star wars battlefront, gta 5 and all of the upcoming games in the next couple of years. It should be able to run them smoothly. It should also be very very fast with extremely fast boot up times and load times. I need a very good SSD. It should also be able to be used for video editing, rendering and other power hungry applications.

The monitor should be able to be able to switch between pc and ps4 without fiddling around with wires.

I don't know what budget to price this at so please do it as cheap as possible without loosing the quality i need.

I am in uk so use uk parts please :)))

CHEERS FOR THE HELP!!!

all the best, luke

Installing Mac OS on non-Apple hardware violates the TOS.

It's called a "Hackintosh" for a reason... If it was fully legal we would have found a better name for it

Here we go. A super new I7 with a very popular and reliable motherboard from a great brand, 16GB of RAM, a top-end SSD with a HDD, a bang-for-the-buck GPU, a regular case, windows 10, and a 1440p monitor. I'm not sure about the monitor choice, but it definitely has what you need. I would plug in your PC with Displayport, and your PS4 with HDMI.

Walking on thin ice here. I can tell you that there is at least 1 component which is not compatible with Mac OS X in that build.

which one?

Is it the M.2 SSD? I think that would be the most likely to cause problems. You could just change to a SATA SSD.

The interface isn't the issue. The protocol is.
