Default Re: would this work

Pretty sure you can't install OSX on anything other than an Apple computer, and that looks like its an upgrade OS, not a full OS, anyway.

I heard something about the makers of OSX releasing some way to install OSX on some Intel-based PCs, but I think you have to buy extra software and I wouldn't know anything about it.

You pretty much need windows if you want to play games. If you are building your own rig you can get a tech-builders OEM version of windows for like $110 though:

Linux is ok as long as you don't mind it dictating the games you play - there's quite a limited amount out there, but it is slowly improving. If you want to be able to walk in a shop, pick up a game and come back home and play it 100% without issues though forget it - afraid your only (legal) option is to grab a copy of windows!
