  4. Which hardware component are you looking to buy (component name). If you have already decided on a configuration then please mention the (component brand and model) as well, this will help us in fine tuning your requirement.
    • CPU - Definitely Intel since I will be installing Mac OS also. I know Ryzen works on Mac but I do not want to have any stability issues in Final cut pro. Definitely looking for atleast 8 threads. Its better if processor has integrated graphics because if the GPU craps out, I can still use the onboard graphics.

that would blow my budget away. The difference between RX580 and RX570 is not much in Mac OS and considering that I will get only half of what I paid if I go and sell the RX570, I would rather keep the RX570

well in video editring RX 580 will help as it is more powerful and 8gb ram to rx 570 4gb. anyways why this thread exist is the confusion for me like their is not requirement given. you could have also gone for a amd build if needed as hackintosh is possible on them too.


you can also go for opencore solution.
