Sorry to be the trillionth person that has probably asked this question but I'm unsure as to whether my hardware will work so thought it would be best to ask. To my knowledge it won't so I'll need to buy additional hardware but just in case I'm wrong I'll post anyway. Here is the output of:

lspci -nn > ~/Desktop/pci_ids.txt
00:00.0 Host bridge [0600]: Intel Corporation Core Processor DRAM Controller [8086:0040] (rev 18)

01:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller [10ec:8168] (rev 06)

My processor is an Intel® Core™ i3 CPU 540 @ 3.07GHz × 4 

 
My motherboard is an ASRock H55M-GE R2.0 which I could not see any information about so can only assume that I may need to upgrade everything.

 

With the information above is it possible for me to run either Snow Leopard, Lion or Mountain Lion? If it is not possible what hardware do I need to upgrade?

 
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Your hardware its all 100% supported and can run Mountain Lion without problem.

There must be no problems other that possible user mistake.

U must have best bootloader for you,i would suggest that u use Clover.

Thanks for your quick reply. I've attempted (and failed) to hackintosh my system before but have only ever had a Windows system to prepare everything. I have since sourced a 2010 MacBook so I can use that to prepare everything properly this time around...
