    Default Reassure/Convince me

    I'm a videographer/compositor and I need a cheap hardware setup. I need to use a Macintosh, but to do something powerful enough for my needs I want to build a hackintosh. I've looked at the hardware builds page and am told to be skeptical about taking this step by everyone I know because of potential issues. So, my question is, will this hardware setup

    "Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 or MSI x58 Platinum or ASUS P6T Deluxe
    Processor: Intel Core i7 920
    Video: 9800 GTX
    Hard Drive: 500GB 7200 rpm + 500 GB 7200 rpm
    Memory: 6GB RAM DDR3
    Power Supply 750/1000w
    DVDRW Serial ATA" work 100%???

    I would like to have no issues with any of the hardware or software. I will be using Final Cut Pro and Adobe After Effects and such. Can I perform a retail install? Are the chances high that I will have to perform work to my machine beyond building it and installing the OS?

    Should I worry?

    I built that exact system and I use it for Final Cut Studio 2 as well as the full Adobe CS4 suite no probs at all.

    Any issues you might encounter will be small in nature and 99 percent can be resolved easily enough.

    I was skeptical as well but after getting it all set up I'm extremely happy with the results.

    BTW, one of the others worries I had was updating, but I just did the update to 10.5.7 and it was flawless.

    Guide can be found here btw: Gigabyte EX58-UD5 Guide
