Hi, I built my own computer a couple of months ago, and it is quite a powerhouse. I like windows, but I would like to explore OS X without having to pay for overpriced Apple hardware. Would I be able to run OS X and make a hackintosh out of this PC:
Intel i5 3570k @4.2GHz
ASRock z77 Pro3 Mobo
8GB Corsair XMS 3 RAM @1600 MHz
PNY GTX 560 (non-ti)
WD Caviar Blue 500GB HDD
Corsair GS700 PSU

Will I be able to install OS X?

Hi :) 

Only certain hardware will run on OS X...


All the best Brett :)

A good alternative is to run OS X in virtual machine. It takes the incompatible hardware out of the picture at the price of some performance loss. It has been a while since I set mine up so I don't remember where I found the guide. That is where google would come in ;)
