    You can not simply install a Mac OS X on a PC, like you would with windows, without actually to hack it. Hence the name Hackintosh.

    Another excellent resource

    Hackintosh's are very hardware specific, well in fact they are less specific then they used to be, but still you can't pick just any motherboard, or video card, etc. Gigabyte motherboards for example are generally the preferred choice, but others work as well, they just require more work.

    This forum is for Windows on Macs, not Mac OS X on PCs, so the resources you have been directed to are more appropriate.

    There was a recent thread in another MR forum where another user was talking about their Asus P6T/i7 based hackintosh. Maybe they could be of some assistance.
