    I've been doing some research on hackint0sh and virtual machine but can't figure out witch one to use. I've tried searching for a guide but most of them are from 2006-2009 witch is kinda out dated.

    My first question is if my computer could support it.
    Right now its running:
    Windows XP
    Media Center Edition
    Service Pack 2

    Specs:
    Intel
    Pentium D CPU 2.80GHz
    2.79GHz, 0.99GB of RAM

    My secound question is which one should I choose? Hackint0sh or Virtual Machine? Are the results the same? Which one is harder to use?

    Thats all. Hope you can answer them, thanks =D

    You'll almost always want to Hackintosh. The OS runs on native hardware and it's just faster overall. But seeing from your CPU, I don't think you can run the vanilla kernel, which means you're going to have to pirate OS X. That's where I stop helping.

    A legit install? No. A hacked kernel + an illegal download? *shrugs*

    What specs can I improve to do a legal install?

    Your processor. But the main thing is your motherboard. The processor has to be something close or something that Apple uses in their computers - i.e. Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Quad, Core i5, i7.

    Will overclocking help?

    No. Clock speed has nothing to do with it, it's the chip's architecture that the vanilla kernel depends on.

    No. It's still the same hardware.

    You can make a fairly cheap PC that's capable of OS X without a problem.
