I just successfully made my first Hackintosh with 10.8 (Wahoo!) and I was wondering if I would be able to use the PCI wifi card pre installed into my HP Pavillion Elite m9360f desktop.
All that I know about the Wifi card is on the image attached. I have a feeling it might be Ralink, as Windows Update has asked me to install a Ralink driver in the past.

The desktop is not near my router so having only ethernet is out of the option. Right now I have Ethernet sharing from a laptop. Does anyone know if it will work? Thanks! :)

Yes, there are Ralink wi-fi drivers available for OS X. Whether it will work or not depends on the chip used, this is not always obvious from the model number or name.
