Someone point me to relatively new guide to build hackintosh/ post-pro workstation?

I'm looking to build a computer specifically for post-production editing and visual effects, and some sound. I've done a bit of googling but I've only been able to find articles from 2013 and older. They're a good start, but technology comes a long way in 2-3 years. I'm just wondering if anyone has come across a good guide written in the past year? Or, what setups do you have, what works for you? Specific video and sound cards, etc? Monitors? Literally anything at all.

I'm shooting on a Panasonic GH4, and I'd like to be able to shoot and edit at the highest quality.

I suggest you consider a windows based machine that can be homebuilt esp to the needs of your NLE instead.
The biggest problem with the apple computer you pay more for less, also the software etc is more expensive and there is fewer choice of software.
Not trying to get into a Mac debate, but why pay more for less?

I was definitely planning on going with windows, thank you. It's all I've ever used. I've been on a Mac once or twice but not long enough to get to know it.

When I said hackintosh, I meant it in a general way. I don't plan on going Mac.

I forgot to mention I'll hopefully be using Adobe CC, or maybe some CS version if I can't afford the subscription. Then probably the free version of DaVinci. My brother uses Blender for vfx. I'll basically be upgrading my programs as I can afford to, so I want my processing and memory to be as large as I can get and be able to afford, and not have to upgrade anything when I upgrade my softwares.
