I’ve got an Asus P8B75-M motherboard with an Intel Core i3 processor, 4GB RAM, 1TB HDD, 1GB ATI Radeon DDR3 graphics card and a Coolermaster 500w PSU. Can you tell me if these specifications are suitable for installing Mac OS X?
Here is the MUO guide to building Hackintosh ( a pc with mac os), check requirements in this guide. :)
run it on a virtual box or in a virtual pc..
Yes, go with Mountain Lion.
Think about your question, Are my PC’s specifications up to the task of running Mac OS X?
Its not that difficult to work out is it - NO! its a PC not an Apple Mac.
Read through the answers you have been given and work out who knows what etc...............
I would think so. The core I3 is a quite capable CPU.
You can make your PC LOOK like the Mac OS X layout, but I'm not sure about it actually running it.
try consult google
i check your motherboard with tested list of components in http://www.osx86project.org
site, but it is not avaliable. i suggest to contact that site to ask about your components as it may be not tested yet
OS X only comes with kernel extensions for selected graphics card models so "1GB ATI Radeon" is not enough to make any judgement in that regard
In general there is no guarantee things will work. Even if you have the exact same specifications as someone else running a hackintosh something like a different GPU or motherboard firmware or just a different method of "hacking" OS X can make it or brake it.
The best source for information and help probably is the OSx86 site.

Read them closely and I think it will help you. :)
First of all you will not be able to experience Mac OS X fully without apple hardware.But if you still want to then run it on a virtual box.Because sometimes apple just does not work.If you want to run it on your system like "windows way" you should know what you really are doing.Sometimes things just mess up. There are many people who are trying to prove you really don;t need an apple hardware to run Mac OS.You could try tonymacx86 blog or http://www.sysprobs.com/install-mac-snow-leopard-1063-oracle-virtualbox-32-apple-intel-pc.
