How much would a nice Hackintosh cost these days?

I am debating...... New PC for $1000 or so, or spend the $1000 on a Hackintosh? I can't build one, but I have someone who definitely can, and said he would build one and take a video of it being built in hopes of showing people he can build them ( he owns an iPhone repair business and wants to expand his market ).

I could ask him, of course, but the idea for this thread just popped into my head right before I started typing...

Mostly I want to run iMovie for now, and Final Cut eventually, while being able to run WoW. And if I can run dual OS, then just a few PC programs that I have.

Not going to be much help other than to say that either way try to get a bulk ton of memory and decent sized hard drive if you intend to do video editing with Final Cut.
