This is socket 775 board, yes? Any discrete GPU? Probably won't be able to run anything later than 10.6.2 with onboard gfx if no GPU. Check your audio and LAN chips. You can probably run OS X using NullCPU if graphics will work until you can extract and edit a DSDT. Whether you can get audio or networking going depends on the chips you have.

If you can connect with cat5e cable that will work just fine if you make sure you get a board from the Buyer's Guide list of recommended boards (or a board that has the identical NIC of one of the listed boards).

Bothe the board and the CPU are in the recommended list of the Buyer's guide. Did you bother to look at the lists for motherboard and CPU rather than the suggested builds? OnCPU gfx should be OK for general use/light gaming. Any HDD/SSD will work Be careful with RAM. Make sure the RAM you intend to buy is on the QVL list of the board you...

Recommend separate SSDs for Windows and OSX. Makes a much easier install and updates are also much easier. For UEFI based mainboards, better to use Clover and install both OS X and Windows UEFI mode, which is another reason to use separate drives. Installing both on the same UEFI formatted SSD is a pain. If you install Windows first, OS X may...
