Will this setup work? Any advice on audio and other add-ons like bluetooth, media card readers, extra firewire/usb ports?
Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4GHz Q6600
Intel P45 LGA775 Motherboard BOXDP45SGC
XFX GeForce 9800GT 512MB DDR3 PCI-Ex16
Hitachi 1TB SATA HD
G.Skill 2x2GB DDR3 SDRAM
XCLIO Stablepower 500W Power supply

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated as this is my first Hackint0sh build.

For Audio check this list for Creative ones, if you want some professional cards, check the official websites to know if they have OSX support, for bluetooth check the HCL.
Everything else looks great :P not sure about your mobo, you can have better results with gigabyte ones, avoid nforce chipset.
icchansan, thanks for the input. any suggestions on a different mobo?
With P45 Chipset and DDR3 Support check this:
If you like Intel, check the Intel Mobos Extreme Serie :P
