hey there, im brand new to this whole situation and am looking to buy an absolutely beat down pc for various forms of media creation. my ideal situation would be to have a duel booting set up with 64 bit windows 7 and some form of Mac OS X. The computer im looking to buy is below and i am basically wondering if any of this hardware will make it impossible to get an install of mac os x working smoothly.

Intel i7-980X
asus p6x58-e motherboard
6GB Corsair 1600Mhz RAM
Nvidia GTX470 graphics card
60GB OCZ VERTEX2 SSD - solid state hard drive for use as system drive
1 TB WD BLACK working drive
coolermaster HAF932 tower case
1000W corsair PSU (HX1000) extra quiet cpu power unit +cooler
extreme copper touch CPU cooler

any of your thoughts would be greatly appreciated!!

It looks like it should work. Find a OSx86 distro with a cool name and give it a shot (one is just as good as the next). For dual boot, check out my guide here.
