    Default Ideal, least hassle free, ~100% working Hackint0sh

    Hi people, Im looking to buy/build a new comp... I plan on using Windows 7 but would also like to get to use OSX...

    Now my question to all you knowledgeable folk is this....

    Im planning on using an i5 processor, so, I would like to know the best, most hassle free hardware I can get to go along with the processor...?

    Just some extra notes:

    I won't be using the machine for hardcore gaming as but would like a GPU that does't struggle at all with games such as Half life 2, Team Fortress 2 and HD video and supporting multiple monitors etc.
    I would like to have ~1tb of storage.
    I will be primarily using the machine for everyday university tasks so it needs to be able to handle multiple applications open like word, netbeans, pdfs, internet, music dadada.
    I would like to install a retail version of OSX.
    The upper limit of my budget is 500GBP (Using an Aussie laptop so no GBPound symbol)

    If any other info is required please don't hesitate to ask

    Regards

    Tomo

    I read in various places that you can run OS as a virtual machine using VMware. Google should help here. I intended to have my new build run as a dedicated Mac. Not having too much success.
