Can my PC handle mac os?
I recently discovered that it is possible to install mac os on a 'windows' pc. I would like to know how to do this, but i don't really have an idea where to start.. and if it is even possible to even install mac os on my pc..
These are the specs from my pc, can somebody tell me if it is possible to install mac os?
And if now, wich parts do i need to replace..?
Sorry for, probably, another "is it possible to install.." topics.. but i have no idea where to start, i hope somebody can help me out!

I would suggest that you familiarize yourself with the following web site. The link below will explain what you need to do.
tonymacx86 Blog: iBoot + MultiBeast: Install Mac OS X on any Intel-based PC
Download the latest MultiBeast (version 3.5.2), you will need to join the website to be able to download. I have not used this install method myself, but by all accounts it is quite easy.
Thanks! that looks like the same method that the guys from lifehacker.com are using for the're guide/tutorial.
Looks pretty easy to do.. but is that the only thing to do to make my computer into a hackintosh? Will it work if I install snow leopard with iBoot + MultiBeast? Or do I need to install a lot of extra stuff? (been reading some stuff about Kexts? don't exactly know what those things are exactly, and if i need to download / install them, and if so wich ones)
From what I have read MultiBeast will do everything for you including adding any necessary kexts. Kexts are Kernel Extensions....think of them as drivers in the Windows world. Parts of your computer will be able to use native Apple kexts and others will require third party ones created by the Hackintosh community. It is a good idea to know the make/model/chip set, of all the components in your system before proceeding with the install. Like I mentioned previously I have not done this install myself, so I would suggest that you get involved with that community as they will be better suited to answer any questions you might have if you run into any problems. Good luck.
I will read into that! Thank you very much

Spike, would you happen to know where I can find info on loading OSX on an AMD laptop? I can provide detailed specs if ya like, Ive already done so in another post. but i thought I'd drop a quick question, see if theres anything like multibeast for amd systems.
You would have to use one of the "distro's". These are basically the same OS X with a modded kernel so that it will run on an AMD processor. The one that I have heard referenced the most is called: Hazard. You cannot update these from the Apple server as it will break your installation, any updates have to come via the developer of the package itself. Also, use these strictly at your own risk and discretion as you would be in contravention of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act in your country.
