While it's possible to run OS X on a PC using hacks, it is not recommended to do so.

Here are a few reasons:
1. It is illegal to do so.
2. You will not get any support from Apple.
3. You will always face problems.
4. OS X is optimized for macs, and Apple does many things to keep OS X exclusive to macs, so you will find OS X to be troublesome on PCs.

Just get a mac. You can get the cheapest mac -- the mac mini, if you already have keyboard, display, and mouse. Else opt for the cheapest iMac.

The site gives two links, one link to a wiki, and the other to a forum. Here's what the wiki says: "Welcome to the OSx86 Project - the undisputed leader in information regarding OS X on x86 hardware and Apple's Intel transition. Open since 2005, the OSx86 Project offers users a place to trade and share information about OSx86 and the various hardware needed to run it; a virtual Wikipedia of OSx86 resources. After browsing the wiki, be sure to visit our forum for the best Macintel resources and discussion around."

That's help on Apple Macs, not PCs.

Parallels is a virtualization software. It is better than dual-booting but it has it's own share of problems. The RAM becomes half for each OS, you shouldn't even think of playing games on either OSes, and not all hardwares will be utilized.

As I've said before, OS X is optimized for macs, and Apple does many things to keep OS X exclusive to macs, so you will find OS X to be troublesome on PCs.

Buying a mac is definitely the best option for running OS X. It comes installed, and you will get support from Apple too. Besides, all mac today (the cheapest mac mini included) runs Vista with Aero and all that on.
