Here is my current PC that I'm HOPING to turn into a hackintosh, I'm pretty sure I can do it, considering the fact that I've done it with a distro of Snow Leopard on a pretty much the same mobo and hardware. I just don't remember exactly where I started.


Here are the specs of the PC:

The Graphics card isn't integrated, And I know it should work with OS X, Just not completely sure which distro is needed.


I'd like to get a distro of Lion or Mountain Lion on it, but I will settle for Snow Leopard.


The only thing I had a problem with last time was the ethernet, there were no drivers for it.  But this one is a little bit different, and hopefully there are drivers for it.


If any more info is needed to find out which distro is recommended, I will gladly supply it :)


The only thing I'm asking from you guys is to point me in the right direction. Thanks
