How to install snow leopard on this build I'm doing.

I am getting parts to build a hackintosh. I want to run snow leopard, and I would like to know if this hardware will work for this hackintosh build, or if I will need new parts. The board I am getting is a Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H, a Intel core I5-2500k Quad core 3.3 GHz Processor with 6MB of cache. I also plan on getting a LG dvd burner and buying a snow leopard 10.6.3 retail installer disk. I have the links to the parts I'm getting on amazon. I will post them, but if I'm not suppose to post the links, I apologize in advance for that. 



Thanks for any help in advance too.  :D  :thumbsup_anim:

P.S. I am reusing a ATX computer case that I have for when my dad's mobo when to mobo heaven. I am also reusing a Dynex 520 watt psu(http://www.amazon.com/Dynex-520-Watt-Power-Supply/dp/B0067SJC80/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1377202035&sr=8-1&keywords=Dynex+520+watt+psu). Also I would like to know if I can use the built in graphics on the mobo so i don't have to buy the video card because I can't afford one right now.  :(


Thanks for taking your time to read all of this (I know it's a lot) and any help will be appreciated in advance!  :D  :thumbsup_anim:

Yes I understand that. But my problem is that as it stands right now, I don't have access to another mac with snow leopard to create a [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] installer. So then my question is, what can I do? I don't really want to use a distro, because as for one, I'm sure these parts can run close to vanilla, and two, I don't want to pirate.
