I'm getting an AMD Athlon II quad core PC today with Windows 7, replacing an aging PowerPC iMac. I'd still like to use some of the Mac-only programs on my old computer, like FinalCut Pro and GarageBand. I found a great article on Lifehacker about using VirtualBox to set up a virtual Snow Leopard machine, but I'm wondering if I can use my existing software and just run OS X 10.4 instead.

Is that doable?

I don't think this is something with can discuss here, due to the breach of Apple's EULA.

but in answer to your question. If you have Windows 7 Ultimate, you could try XP Mode and try and run OS X 10.4 in a virtual machine in XP Mode. But I think it's unlikely to run, as XP Mode, seems to be "tuned" to run Microsoft Operating Systems only and not other OSes. However VMware Workstation can run OS X.

if you use VMware Workstation 6.5.3 or later you have a chance of doing what you want in your question. However, AMD Athon II, I'n not sure if it has the VT and SSE3 you require for OS X to work correctly.
