Hackintosh build questions

Hi so recently it came to me that it might be fun to build a Hackintosh, but as I have no prior experience, I wanted to ask here. So it's going to be on the super cheap, using previous gen 775 based equipment. It must be on a MITX or maybe MATX board, and preferably have DDR3 RAM. Also, I was planning to use a modded Xeon X5450 as the CPU (will this even work on a hackintosh?) . Also, I would like a good GPU recommendation. (I will be buying most of this on eBay). I will be buy a tier 2/3 PSU and use an HDD that I have laying around

So final summary:
Can I use the 771 to 775 mod in a hackintosh?
What is a good 775 MITX mobo?
What is a good GPU for this build/hackintosh?

Thanks!
