Default Mac OS X on a PC

I was wondering if it was possible for me to buy a copy of MAC OS X and install it on an empty hard drive I have and switch out the hard drives on my pc when i want to use os x? Would that be possible?

I haven't run it on a PC before, but I read that you do need SSE3. I've also heard that it works a bit better on integrated graphics.
