The CPU is what's really going to get you.  You are better off saving up for a cheap Sandy Bridge-based setup using the cheapest parts from the HCL.  It will really reduce the amounts of headaches you will encounter.  Getting a Hackintosh running smoothly is an adventure.

Or even a cheap Ivy Bridge Pentium (or even Celeron) CPU plus a fitting motherboard and a G210 card and you'll be good to go vanilla. Perhaps there will be Pentium/Celeron Haswell CPUs in the near future, so you could buy a very cheap rig with future proof OSX support, if you don't mind underwhelming performance. Keep an eye on Google.


If you stay with AMD, though, Lion 10.7.5 - at least for now - is the newest stable iteration you can install on it, and you'll need a G210 or other discrete card anyway.


All the best!
