    Default Switch a 2011 iMac for a Hackintosh

    Hi guys, ripventura here.
    I hope you can help me with my case...

    A couple of years ago (5 - 7) I used to have a PC and love to use my hackintosh.
    The problem at that time was that the hardware requirements were a pain in the ***, and was pretty common to have some parts like audio / wifi cards not working properly...

    I got tired of the hacking thing and bought a MacBook White, and now I have this:
    iMac 21.5" Mid 2011, i5 Quad-core 2.5GHz, AMD 6750M 512MB, 12GB RAM DDR3


    It's a pretty good build for common tasks, even dealing with some video editing (the 12GB RAM works like charm) and some "XCoding" (I'm an iOS developer).

    The thing is that I really want to build a hardcore gaming beast, and for that I must sell my iMac.
    On the other hand, I CAN'T abandon Mac OSX (1: Because it's not even comparable to windows 2: I need it for work).

    Here's the PC I'm about to buy:
    i7 3770 3.4GHz, AMD 7870 2GB (or G-Force GTX 660-Ti 2GB), 8GB DDR3 Corsair Vengeance, Mother Board MSI H61MU-B35.

    My question is:
    Is it a good choice to dump a really good iMac, and start depending on hacks to use Mac OSX (but with the hardware 5x better)?

    Thanks in advance!
