The RAM you might be able to cheap out on but if you want any kind of stability do NOT get the "cheapest" power supply. When building Windows computers, cheap power supplies result in random BSOD errors, I imagine the same could be said for OS X but substitute Kernel Panic for BSOD.

Check on the Hackintosh forums. Some motherboards will not work with osx - the Hackintosh forums usually have a list of components that will work under osx. Buying the cheapest will lead to problems. Also don't forget that once you get a Hackintosh running, an osx update may cause problems. Sometimes you have to mess with system files, which is no fun.
