NZXT H1 + RX 5700 XT Sapphire + i7 9700k First PC Build Advice

Hey guys, I want to build a pc which is dual boot with both Windows and Mac OS, I have never done Hackintosh before. My dad agreed to loan me the amount of money I need for my build but I will have to give him a day that I will pay it back.

I am trying to become a game developer using Unity and Unreal Engine 4 and also a tech YouTuber which is why I wanted to build a Hackintosh for potential with FCPX and was not willing to pay Apple's outrageous prices.

I'm planning on paying my dad back at the end of 2022 but because of health issues (Cholinergic Urtikaria), I can't do entry-level work in retail where there is heavy physical labor.

I spent a few hours researching and came up with this list for what I'm going to build, feel free to make any fixes to it because I don't have any experience with building PC's or Hackintoshes so this will be my first PC build.

I know the NZXT H1 comes with a liquid cooler and 650 watt PSU, but I don't know if I should buy any fans to put inside so I still have to do some research.
