Hi :) This is my first Hackintosh so i created a little guide how to install MAC OS X MOUNTAIN LION on this PC:

1) Make an USB Boot installer with Mac OS X Mountain Lion
2) Boot to the installer with boot-arg: -v GraphicsEnabler=No AtiConfig=Chutoro
3) Erase the HDD and make a Mac OS X Journaled partition
4) After install, boot with boot-arg: -s *
*I used this to boot only with "GraphicsEnabler=No"
5) Here are the commands what i used to copy the hd7770.zip :

http://www.tonymacx86.com/graphics/94219-howto-ati-hd7770-working-osx-10-8-3-tutorial.html:

a) mount -uw /
b) fsck -fy
c) mkdir /System/Library/AAA
d) ls /dev/disk* - to indentify my USB Drive where the HD7770.zip is located.(disk2 for me)
e) mount_msdos /dev/disk2 /System/Library/AAA
f) cd /System/Library/AAA
g) ls
h) When the file shows then copy the file to another location to be 100% sure if the file exist in the right folder - cp /System/Library/AAA/HD7770.zip /System/Library/BBB . After this command type cd .. to get to / root: and type "reboot" or just type reboot :p
6) Boot to the mac os x with boot-arg.: GraphicsEnabler=No -x -v
7) Install the sleepenabler.kext with KextUtility from the HD7770.zip
8) Reboot and boot with boot-arg.: GraphicsEnabler=No -v
9) Press Start and press again Start to enter the mac os x. Now the temperatures are super high ( 128*C ) and the mac os x have a system lag.
10) To resolve the system lag issue. Boot with boot-arg.: GraphicsEnabler=No -v cpus=1
10a) Download VoodooTSCSync.kext and edit the IOCPUNumber from 11 to 3 ( 3 is for i3 cpus)
10b) Install the VoodooTSCSync.kext and reboot only with boot-arg.: GraphicsEnabler=No
11) To resolve the high temperatures after waking
11a) Download the FBRotate file https://www.dropbox.com/sh/mdv9jbiosxaxwca/T6nTbzkrhu
11b) Insert the file to autostart and reboot :D
11c) This app will fix the white screen and u dont will need to use sleeptrick.
12) Install MultiBeast.

SCREENSHOTS FROM MULTIBEAST​




ISSUES
-High temperatures after waking. Over 125*C on the CPU Heatsink and Northbridge


Summary
I think that i don't need to tell more. The GPU is working very well. On GeekBench i got 6800 points. I think this is a normal score for a i3 cpu :p. The test was in 32bit, not 64bit ;/ I have the trial free version.
