That depends on what version of MacOS you wish to run.

For example, Core 2 Duo / Core 2 Quad CPUs (7xxx / 8xxx / 9xxx) from the socket 775 era more than 10 years ago are officially supported up to MacOS High Sierra 10.13.6.

Some people have gotten them to work with MacOS Mojave by replacing some files by those from a High Sierra installation :

As for graphics cards, if the CPU you use has supported CPU integrated graphics (e.g. HD4000 from selected 3rd generation Ivy Bridge i3 / i5 / i7 CPUs 8 years ago) and your motherboard has supported graphics output port (HDMI / DisplayPort) then you can use CPU integrated graphics with up to Mojave and Catalina and no discrete graphics card is required.
