Just recently bought this new HP Desktop and surprisingly everything seems to work.
Ok, here are the major specs.

Intel® Core™ i5 processor 650, 3.2 GHz
ATI Radeon™ HD 5570 Series
Ralink RT3062 Wireless LAN 802.11 b/g/n
Realtek Sound ALC888/ALC888S
Realtek LAN RTL8168/8111D

The major Distros, which are ##### for retail & iAtkos S3 v2 which runs very slow, were unable to set my computer up and running.
"Nawcom's Boot CD" is the real deal. This Boot cd along with Retail Snow disc did the job for me.

After updating to 10.6.7 using 10.6.7 Combo Update, graphics worked out of the box. For Wi-Fi, I used original software on Ralink website. VoodooHDA 0.2.56 works perfectly on this machine.

The major boot flags are cpus=1 busratio=24. After install, in order to boot from hard drive, add "maxmem=2048".

Will be upgrading to LION very soon! This computer is very good, GET ONE!
