    Opinions on budget hackintosh


    Hey
    I am looking to build a budget computer to load MacOS onto. This is the first time i've done this.
    My budget is 300 (but the lower the better, i'm a student i don't have money lol), and i based this build loosely around Snazzy Labs's $350 hackintosh.
    i already have a 500gb hard drive which i will use too
    Not gonna be using it for gaming (my windows rig is for that), but maybe some very light video and photo editing, plus casual browsing etc.
    What do you think? What's good, and what should i change?

    (also, not sure about that incompatibility warning... seems like they should be fine to me, if someone could explain that it would be great)

    "Some Intel H110 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Kaby Lake-S CPUs. Upgrading the BIOS may require a different CPU that is supported by older BIOS revisions."
    That can be a problem, I'd try to find something on Gigabyte's site about either the BIOS update or a different board that supports the CPU you have. Or as suggested a different, older CPU.
