Hello guys,


Mayhem, 22yo, computer fanatic since 6 years old and long time loyal Windows user. From the past few weeks i've been growing fonder on the Apple software and would love to get some help on installing OS X on my Hard Drive. I currently have a HDD WD640GB but I'll be getting a second one (maybe a 500GB) to keep both operating systems separate. My hardware is the following:


- AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition

- Asus M5A78L/USB3

- GSkill 2x4GB 1600GHz

- AMD Radeon 6770 1GB DDR5

- Nox Cyclops

- HD Western Digital 640GB


Is it possible to run OS X on this machine? It was self built. If it is, which version would you recommend?


Thanks a lot and cheers!
