My Gear (Desktop Computer): Mac OS on a PC = Hackintosh Tower

Thanks to Lifehacker, I’m able to use a PC as a fully functional Mac, aka a Hackintosh Tower.  It’s the best of both worlds.

You get to run the latest version of Mac OS on top of the line parts, but without paying inflated Apple prices.
You also get to run Windows 7!  (It’s win-win!)…all for ~$900.

Here’s the main specs…

Intel Quad Core 3.0GHz
8GB of RAM

2GB Hard Drive for Mac OS 10
1GB Hard Drive for Windows 7

Visit Lifehacker for their awesome guide for how to set this up.

Would I still buy this today?
Definitely…2 paws way up!  Unless I could afford an actual Mac Pro Tower which is about 3x the price for very similar specs.
