Auditing encompasses a lot of areas.

Here's what I configure on my servers:

Audit account logon events -> Success, Failure
Audit account management -> Success, Failure
Audit directory service access - Failure
Audit logon events -> Success, Failure
Audit object access -> Failure
Audit policy change -> Success
Audit privilege use -> Failure
Audit process tracking -> Not defined
Audit system events -> Success

Well I'm not 100% you will be able to gather all information like MACS but you will get IP addresses

You can NOT just get Remote Desktop Events. There is no such thing as Remote Desktop Auditing you must turn on auditing which audits other Events.
