Hi everyone,

I currently have i5-8600k, Asrock Z370M, and GTX1070. I am planning on installing Mac OS on it. I am a total noob and I don't know much about Hakintoshes so I wanted to ask a couple of questions. - I was wondering if I will be able to install OS Mojave or Catalina on this PC. - Also, I heard its better to have AMD GPU. Is that true? If so, what is a good alternative to GTX1070 on a budget?

Thanks.

Don't hackintosh. If you want a mac, buy one.

For your second question, get a Vega 56. It has similar performance to the 1070. Just make sure your PSU can handle it.

Unfortunately, KTech08 is correct.

If you are just looking for a different OS or looking to run a UNIX-derived OS, a FOSS OS like Linux distro or a BSD varient would be a good option (as long as you're remotely competent with anything besides Windows or are willing to learn).

Otherwise, if you need to run macOS-specific software, your options are likely limited to finding an alternative program, or a port to your current OS.
