Your graphics card is not supported on MacOS due to lack of Nvidia drivers. The rest of the components should be compatible with MacOS Catalina and Big Sur with OpenCore or Clover 5124 and later as bootloader.

If you want to try to install and run MacOS (Catalina or Big Sur) on your machine, you will have to first replace your graphics card with a supported AMD card like the RX 580 or RX 5700 XT.

However, you must be aware that due to current circumstances the prices of new graphics cards are rising everywhere, so it will not be wise to invest in one right now. Do you have to do it now?

Thank you so much for your response @Jamesbond007 I really appreciate you taking out the time to do so. I would like to also thank you for the information that you gave me on the possibility of making my PC an actual Hackintosh. I prefer to use this machine to run osx for my video editing. I will replace the video card with an AMD card and start to look into what it is that I have to do.

That should do if you want to install and run MacOS Catalina or Big Sur on your machine.

Be advised that since you are attempting to install MacOS on an AMD Ryzen system, you should be mindful of software compatibility issues since MacOS is designed to run on Intel and not AMD CPUs. In particular Adobe CC applications are known to have problems, and virtualization software like VMware Fusion will not work properly.
