I know it's a bad processor, I am not looking to make an amazing Hackintosh, or let alone an amazing computer, this is more of a side project. Would like to know though, because I cannot find the answer to this anywhere else.

The original i3 processor has Intel HD graphics which Apple has never supported. Use a suitable GPU for the version of OS X that you wish to use. Some newer cards like a GT610 will work in Mountain Lion and Mavericks but there will not be support in Snow Leopard. Do you have access to the App Store to download Mavericks from a Mac or PC Mac.
