Don't worry about that. Just because its not on the list doesn't mean it won't work. The list is for tested hardware.

Your graphics card will work but make sure you read point 7.7 in the guide

Exactly. Although in most cases it is fixable with modern motherboards

Of course., a hackintosh will have some problems after installation, because it's not for everyone ! If you want a stable system, go on linux !
And some solutions to solve problems are here, just use the search function ;)

Okay so I should just try the 10.8 guide en watch if it works. But if it doesnt should I try 10.7.4? Cause my motherboard and graphiccard are supported...( http://wiki.osx86pro...L_10.7.4#ASRock )

What Linux version do you prefer actually? I once tried mint but my video driver, and some programs such as chrome and explorer didn't work well.....

If it works on 10.7.4 and its 64-bit you can make it work on ML in almost all cases.

The Ubuntu family is the easiest to get going with, it all just works; although the 6850's don't like linux at the moment, not sure if thats been rectified or not yet...

ok but should I first install 10.7.4 and then upgrade to 10.8..or just 10.8..?

10.8

Next week I'm gonna try it but I already read the tutorial, I also watched a few youtube tuts on hackintosh but they mentioned something called "DSDT" and that's also in the tutorial which "rockinron_1" gave me but in the youtube clip he went to http://www.tonymacx8...t-database.html but my motherboard isn't listed in there..?

I think Ubuntu 12.10 is the best ! And yes there is chrome on linux, but it's named Chromium
