    I'm thinking about making the switch to Mac OS X. However, I'm out of money. I have a few Q's:

    . Can I have the link [Or can someone tell me] a tutorial on how to put OS X Leopard onto my PC?

    . Are there any serious errors or compatability issues I might not know?

    . Will my peripherals work? Like my speakers, my Wifi USB Thingy, my Mouse/Keyboard, CD Drive, etc.

    . Will it have problems running on this machine?
    CPU: Quad Core 2.4GHz Intel Processor (64-bit)
    RAM: 4GB RAM
    GFX: NVidia GeForce 9500GT 1GB

    SSE3 is an instruction set. Which you clearly have. Its been implemented long ago. If your CPU came after the C2D days, you're fine. Download CPU-Z to find out. Honestly, I thought you knew a whole lot more than this, you were such the Windows fanboy.

    you will most likely need to get a few drivers for your hardware, wifi and speakers rarely work OTB.

    Most of the drivers you'll need are included on the disc.

    It just doesn't seem safe.
