Getting Lion installed on my desktop only took about 3 hours total, and it's a perfect clone with all hardware working. Even my 5870 has native support. A comparable Mac Pro is about $3000.
EDIT: I like how the Apple store still lists the 5770 as "powerful new graphics cards" hahaha
Most tinkering isn't worth my time anymore. I'll pay the extra buck to have it work right out of the box, then spend my time on more important things.
But I'm glad you got that working Vin.
BTW, how do you like OS X compared to Windows and Linux? How long have you been using it? Are you using it as a primary machine?
