    Have you tried the following Hackintosh specific fora and websites yet?

    Though you need to be more specific about what hardware you exactly have, as every hack is hardware specific.
    Also know, that 2011 and 2012 hardware seems quite easy to hack (if you use an Intel CPU), if you have the right one (Gigabyte boards and Nvidia GPUs and OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion).

    Since this is your first post here and you just registered for this thread (for now), please don't think, that me linking you to those fora is a way to get rid of you, it is to show you a place, where Hackintoshing is discussed ad nausea and is injected into many more veins than here. You will get much better and faster help over there than here.

    I am not that proficient to know, if you can just hack your Dell, better ask over at Tone or/and Insanely.

    I for once would say, that with the Quadro 3000m it might be a bit hard to do so.

    Yup...I think that any GPU that is not available on the Mac won't work on a hackintosh.

    Though it seems those "new" GTX6xx cards run quite well on 10.8.2 and 10.8.3.
