I suggest you do some research.

Just by your first question I can tell that you have done little to no research about installing OS X on non-apple hardware.


1. You will need to install a boot loader

2. Both have working and non working models. If you are video editing with adobe products go nvidia to make use of cuda

3. Do apple use these cards or the same chipset? If not then they will not be natively supported. As to whether they will be supported in the future, only those at apple know this.

4. OS X is traditionally a hybrid, the kernel runs in either 32 or 64 but finder in lion in 64 only so lion os only available to those on 64bit capable hardware

5. How much can you afford?

6. Do you, that's nice, I want to win the lottery

7. Yes but you really shouldn't install both os's to 1 hdd, it's a lot more complicated

8. Yes, you only see it if your graphics card works ootb on snow leopard

9. No but it makes it much easier
