Hello, everybody!

I'd like to know if it's possible to install MacOS Sierra on my PC:
  • ASUS H81M-K
  • Intel Pentium CPU 3260 @ 3.30 GHz
  • NVIDIA GeForce GT 630
  • 8 GB RAM
If yes, is someone so kind to tell me exactly how to do that? I appreciate any help.

Thanks in advance!

Pentium processors are not supported by macOS; you need a Core i3/i5/i7 processor.
Thank you for your answer! One more question: Do I have a chance to make El Capitan work on my system, or it has the same requirements?

Pretty much the same.
Thanks for that info! I managed to install Mountain Lion. Although I know I have little chances of success, I'll try to upgrade it to Sierra.

This is not true, with a few patches and kexts you can use a Pentium CPU in macOS Sierra, with a dedicated graphics card. For example, the NullCPUPowerManagement.kext is needed as well as FakeCPUID (In Clover) + FakePCIID.kext. If you have Clover Configurator, then FakeCPUID can be changed, and you can also tick KernelXCPM to fix some AVX instructions.

Sound: ALC883

Thanks.
