It will be fine**, but know that this isn't something that will be able to accomplished overnight. I would definitely have a separate hard drive dedicated to hackintosh if you try. Here's a guide that looks promising for your motherboard: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=225717. I researched your graphics card some more and it doesn't look like it will work with Snow Leopard. Since AMD processors are not yet compatible with Lion, it looks like you are out of luck. You can probably still get Snow Leopard working; however, you won't have working quartz extreme or core image (basically the graphics driver in Mac OS X). You will get a low unchangeable screen resolution and a lot of graphics lag. Your graphics card however is compatible with Lion. If I were you I would just wait until Nawcom releases a Lion-compatible kernel for AMD on his blog, http://blog.nawcom.com/. Unless you have another graphics card you are willing to throw in, I would just wait it out.

Do not offer money in exchange for help. Does anybody ever read the rules?


As to your card: http://www.osx86.net...efi_string.html


Which works only with Lion, so I guess you are out of luck.


(Honestly, luck has nothing to do with it. I have built 5 (five!) desktops all with OS X compatibility in mind).
