Hello everyone.

Recently I've been interested in trying out and using Mac OS X.
However, neither my PC's nor my laptop's hardware allow for a Hackintosh installation.

Fortunately, I will be buying a new custom built PC soon and I will try to install Windows 7, Mountain Lion and Xubuntu on it.
I don't have many options as you cannot find many pieces of hardware over here, however using guide found on hackintosh.com, I think I have found the optimal PC I can build with it.

Here it is:


Fazn-A18 Piano Black - Midi (A1008)

Power Supply

Turbo-X-650W Value Series


Intel-Core i5 3570K (s 1155 , 3.4 GHz , 6 MB)


Xigmatek-Gaia SD1283 Heatpipe Cooler 120mm (Intel 775, 1156, 1366 & AMD AM2/AM3)


Gigabyte-Z77MX-D3H (s 1155 , Z77 , DDR3 , HDMI)


Corsair-Vengeance 8GB Quad 1600 C9

Hard Drive

Seagate-Barracuda 1TB HDD 3.5" (64MB Cache, 7200RPM, Sata 6Gb/s)

Graphics Card

MSI-GT 640 (PCI Express 16 ,2 GB GDDR3)

DVD Reader

Samsung-DVD-RW SH-222BB Sata Black Bulk

I was wondering if this PC would be capable of running Mountain Lion...
Also, this is my first attempt at a Hackintosh system, so I have to ask that:
Will I be able to access networks through ethernet cables fine, or is it mandatory to get a WiFi adapter card to?

Thanks for your help,
