i would see for more info i can tell you your motherboard doesnt have a dsdt file i would stick with gigabyte z68 motherboards i have a gigabyte ga-z68x-ud3h-b3 it works well with 10.7.4 also have a intel core i 5 2500k your graphics is not compatible the highest AMD card compatible with mac os x is hd 6870. gtx 500 series work with some hacks to a KEXT file

tonymacx86 have a dsdt motherboard database if it has a dsdt it supported under mac os x. you want a DSDT file so it as vanilla as possible otherwise you have yo use easybeast install in mulitbeast cpu powermanagement and sleep wont work right and possibly sound too
