PC build? - Hackintosh

If someone could take a look at the following specs and post any thoughts I would be most appreciative.

I already have SATA HDD, case, screen, keyboard, OS so the things in the pic are all i'm planning on buying

PC will never be used for gaming. moderate photoshop (CS3) and Lightroom use, general surfing/downloading etc.

Would also like to have a go at 'Hackintoshing' it, the choice of the motherboard is down to that, it seems to be a model that allows it relatively easily?

Any points would be great, thanks!

Possibly a Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 2.93GHz Socket 775 1066FSB instead of the processor in the picture

Stretch to a Quad? Chances are the applications your talking about running, you will see a big improvement with a Quad. Even more so in future versions.

Dont need 4GB, 2GB is fine.
Dont need a graphics card as gaming isnt a priority.

The Mobo I put on has HDMI if you want run movie to your LCD,4 DDR3 Ram slots.
Motherboard Specs

As a bonus it save you a terrible experience with Overpricers should anything fail ;o)

Likely to get one for less than £100? The Core2 Duo E7500 I posted is £93 which is about my budget tbh

Cheapest on eBuyer is the Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 at £110. For a tenner, I would lol

I can recommend the E6500 Intel Duo Core, Gets a 6.2 score in Windows 7 which is reasonable and it handles day to day tasks with ease.
