Installing OS X (dualboot with windows) on i7 3770 / GTX 660 / 16 GB / ASUS P8Z77-V LX

Hello.
I have Windows 8.1 installed and I want to install a fresh OS X 10.9.1 so that I could boot both operation systems. What guides should I follow? I heard about some problems with GTX 660 and I don't know what version of OS X to install. Please help me.

My config is following:
Processor: Intel i7 3770
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V LX, UEFI is off, legacy mode.
Graphic card: NVIDIA GTX 660 - and there are no drivers on the NVIDIA site for OS X anymore, even in Beta section. However - http://www.tonymacx86.com/328-native-support-nvidia-gtx-650-ti-gtx-660-graphics-cards-10-8-3.html.
RAM: 16 GB DDR3
HD: WD Caviar Black, 3 partitions (all of them are NTFS).

So, what should I start with? Or should I provide some more info about my config?
Sorry for being n00b, but I am really lost with all of the different guides, bootloaders and etc.
Thanks.

GTX 660 should be fine. I ran 660 Ti for quite a while on my current system without problems. Your biggest problem is going to be the motherboard, I have no idea how well it is supported.

OK, so it's ok with video card now. Or I should do something while installing OS X or it works out of the box? I am a total noob.

What should I start with to achieve dualboot with already installed Windows?
Should I follow this guide? http://www.tonymacx86.com/multi-boo...uide-dual-boot-windows-os-x-4.html#post552574

(I have a MacBook so I can make me a USB stick with all the stuff).

UPDATE.
So I found a post with a similar motherboard - http://www.tonymacx86.com/graphics/112741-installing-mavericks-asus-p8z77-v-lx-2.html#post685490

Will try to do it all a day or two later.
Thanks.
