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.

Actually there are fixes for no AHCI motherboards. All you would need to do is get a few kexts by searching on google “no ahci fix”. I have had success with my pentium installing El Capitan. I recommend installing Mavericks first and upgrading to El Capitan.
