Default Will these parts be compatible with OS X?

And I have a few questions.
Is it alright to buy an OEM hard drive or dvd drive? What doesn't it come with?
Also, the mobo I selected comes with an integrated video chip, will it run MAC OS X well?

Here is the list of the compatibilty parts with MAC OS X 10.4.3

the mobo will work fine, the onboard graphics will be superb for the job.

but no, do NOT buy the operating system. use my guide instead (link will be posted later on this post)

the processor will work fine.

ok, the reason you cant buy that, is because thats not the intel version of osx. use my guide to install mac os x on the pc.
