After working and having fun on a Hackintosh for more than a year now, these are the things I've learned: 1) Be careful with used components. My graphics card was used, and was faulty. I experienced random reboots, until I replaced it with a new one.
2) Buy good RAM. Don't be cheap on it. I was, and had the weirdest glitches in like forever... every 2 months I had to reinstall my system because it got unusable... basically OS does this: OS writes to RAM -> bad RAM writes to disk -> bad RAM over time is like cancer.
Plus, all the stuff I learned about overclocking a PC, delidding and using Liquid Metal, modding the BIOS, memory overclocking, hackintoshing... I just feel like I know much more about hardware than before. Definitely was costly, but worth the investment.
Oh, one more thing: price vs Mac? If you look at the cost of the PC, everything is worth ~2k as of 2020, but I invested more than ~3k, because I made a lot of mistakes. A Mac would be around ~5k with similar specs last time I checked.
