AMD64 X2 processors are capable of SSE3, but currently have a problem on OSX. Install using SSE2.

 

nForce 570 SATA is going to be a problem. You might make this driver work, but I would look for a PATA drive. A 20 GB drive should be really inexpensive - look at doorstops. http://topmods.net/OMC/AppleNVIDIAATA_1.zip

 

Audigy 2 is not going to work.

 

7900GT will need the MacVidia drivers but won't have graphic acceleration - http://macvidia.starchaser.org

 

You have a nice system, but isn't highly compatible with the current hackintosh version of OSX.

 

Installing 10.4.8 with the latest kernel (10.4.8 only) might help your processor and video problem. Using Titan or Natit with the latest kernel might give you video acceleration.
