Working on spec for first Hackintosh build

Question

Hi folks,
I'm working on a spec for a first Hackintosh build and I'm unsure of a few things so any advice/help/suggestions would be appreciated. The following is the proposed spec and my wonderments... btw, I'm based in Ireland so buying from Komplett as all items can be delivered in one shipment. Therefore I am limited to what they have in stock. (Amazon suggesting 5 different shipments and some have to go via parcel motel as cannot ship to Ireland direct - PITA).
    •    I am unsure if the RAM will work with the MoBo as the mobo is Z370 and RAM spec says the "form factor is optimized for the latest Intel X99 Series motherboards".
    •    I am unsure if the GPU is compatible with the MoBo as the GPU RAM is GDDR6. Also wondering if it will work with OSX as the MSI version is not listed on Tmx86. I plan on installing 10.13.6 High Sierra.
    •    I am hoping not to have to buy a monitor as I already have an Apple 27" Thunderbolt (2) Display. I also have 2 other T2 external HDs and I'm wondering how to connect these up to the Hackintosh? Anyone have experience with this? 10TB in total so be a shame to loose them.
    •    Finally, is 750W enough power?
