None of those video cards are supported on Snow Leopard.

7-8 year old video cards, you can pick up something modern and many times better, while not high end, for around 20$

Yes, a video card that's compatible with Snow Leopard will solve the problem, if you're lucky with the rest of your hardware and able to configure everything right.

A Hackintosh is not a way to "get a cheap Mac". All of this is experimental and there are no promises. If you need for your OS X installation to be 100% stable and working for production purposes, then install it on a Mac.

Even though tons of video cards from both ATI and Nvidia are "known" to work, there is no guarantee that you can get it to work on your particular combination of hardware. No matter what, installing OS X on a PC is a gamble, an experiment.
