Advice on me new build!

Hey all,

I wanted to check in w/ the community before I took a stab at building my first Hackintosh. I've been using one that someone else built for me but my guy moved away! My current machine is 32gb ram and an i7 and running off a standard SSD as my boot drive's (I'm dual booting Windows and Mac). I'm a video editor so I wanted to upgrade to editing off an M.2 drive and upgrade my speed.

Here is what I'm planning to build.

Motherboard: GIGABYTE Z390 AORUS Ultra (Because 3x on board m.2!)

CPU: Intel Core i9-9900K

RAM: Ballistix Sport LT 64GB Kit (16GBx4) DDR4 2400 MT/s (PC4-19200) CL16 DIMM 288-Pin - BLS4K16G4D240FSB

GFX: 1080ti Founders. (Might upgrade to 2080 in the future for VR but 1080ti is doing just fine for me right now)

Maybe 2 or 3 x Intel 660p M.2 2280 2TB NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive internal m.2s.

I'm going to use the same cooling system and power supply as I have in my current machine so no worries there.

Thoughts? Any suggestions for alternate pieces would be much appreciated.

I'm no Hackintosh connoisseur but I can build a CPU. Will this project be the death of me?



PS. Or if you're in LA and build Hackintosh's as business PM me so I can just pay you to do it and not add anymore gray hairs.
