I am dual booting win 7 and OSX on a p8p67 pro with i5 2500k and 8gb ram. I'm not sure what you mean by powerful, but there is a ridiculously easy guide to getting OSX running on my mobo in the insanelymac forums. Go to the insanely mac forums for more info on getting OSX setup on a pc.

tonymac86 is the easiest way to do it. Follow a guide from a forum and buy the same parts they use in the quide.

Gigabyte were the best boards to use pre asocket 1155, socket 1155 board seem that Asus is the way to go. I have a MSI 1155 and its dont work. You cant use a AMD system, Intel only.

how do you update the os ? i tried with one and it messed up my install and says you have to reboot all the time at boot

so how doyou guys even get the latest stuff with tthese patched osx?

best way, is to build a mac pro for compatibility reasons. an i7 920-960 and ati 5770-5870 3-6 gigs of ram.
you can build a mac pro for about 900 pounds all in and everything should work straight away if you stick to the mac's current configs for the mac pro setups.
to instal os.x you will need to be running 2 gigs of ram only, the gfx card and 1 Hdd, 1s the os is installed you can then add the rest of your hardware. the kex (mac drivers) for the gfx card come with lion but have to be downloaded with snow lepard (from what i gather)... anyways good luck.
