G'day mate, most of the problems you will mostly encounter is drivers but other possible issues is hardware compatibility. The reason why people build Hackintosh is due to large cost of getting a proper OSX workstation from Apple and someone individual may need to use a specific software that is only on OSX like Final Cut Pro.

The real issue is that the EULA does not allow you to install the Apple OS on a non-apple branded machine.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

If you are interested in building a Hackintosh, TonyMacx86 is a fantastic resource with build guides and help.  There is that pesky EULA though.  For simplicity, just get the cheapest Mac there is and dual boot with Windows.

I will see if my hardware is similar to the list because I don't want to expend money in an emperiment like this

This problems of hardware compatibility can damage my hardware directly?

Hardware incompatibilities will not result in damage simply by attempting to install OSX.  If it doesn't work, nothing is damaged.

What sort of hardware do you currently have right now? There is a comprehensive hardware compatibility list on TonyMacx86, you can check whether your hardware will work although the list is mostly new components on the market.

Based from a bit of research on your motherboard, it can work with OSX although there is a audio driver incapability unfortunately but it is still possible to get it up and running.
