    im wondering if there is a way to install MAC OS on a pc. not a program like PearPC where the mac runs over xp, but is there a way to get mac running as the head OS on a pc?

    its been a few "phases" of building it, but ive put about $1200-$1300 into it. ill prob make a large upgrade in summer. ill try to get a 8800GT and quad core cpu/mobo

    well lets see: original build was beginning of 2007:
    600w psu-90
    case: 50
    3.2GHZ cpu-100
    mobo-100
    ram-140
    old video card-7100gs-50

    look up osx86 or something like that. People also call it hackintosh so look into that too. Keep in mind that you will have to get an illegal copy of Mac OS X, but most people don't mind that. Oh and you can't update it due to all this EFI crap and other stuff. I you really want to and have the time to spare I'd look into it, but if you're gonna make a half-assed effort I'd stay away.
