Hello folks, first post after a while...last time I entered InsanelyMac I was trying to install Snow Leopard on my 5930G...the pre-installed Vista burnt down by itself, and I had to format and install Win7. Oh well.

Ok, now I have built a new computer with these specs:

MoBo: Asrock Z77 Pro3
CPU: i5 3570K
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB(2x4GB)
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB SATA2(recycled from my old PC)
PSU: Corsair GS700
VGA: Gigabyte GTX 670 WindForce

Yeah, a freakin' gaming PC. And it does its job(gaming) damn good.
However, now I have a dual-boot with Windows and Arch Linux. And yesterday it came to my mind: "Hey, I could do a triple-boot with OSX! That would be the most awesome thing since Planescape Torment!"

However, I don't have a Mac.

How can I make an Hackintosh out of this PC, without having a Mac?

Sure. BTW, using OSX to prepare for installing materials is much easier.

What's easier, using this bootable USB or installing Snow Leopard and then upgrading to Lion?

The bootable DVD from Olarila works the same way, right?
