Building a desktop but should I make it into a Hackintosh

I am currently building a pc with relatively low specs
►G4400 Pentium Processor -
►WD Blue 250GB Hard Drive -
►Gigabyte Geforce GTX 1050 -
►Ballistix Sport LT 4GB Ram -
► Intel B250 MotherBoard -
►Micro-ATX Case -
►Power Supply 430Watts -
But I might want to turn it into a hackintosh I have a download cd for 10.8 or 10.7 (with the key) and I can just go through the update process from there. But my question is should I use it?

If you want to use it and it works sure. Comes down to preference and what you want to do with your computer.

Not sure what key you have for 10.8 and 10.7 as they did not have serial #'s for registration.

I don't see much reason to do it unless you wanted an Apple computer in the first place. Gaming is poor on a Mac and other software is more costly.
