But would the potential hassles be worth it?

No way. Having run a hackintosh (not the first time) for a while while waiting for the retina macbooks to first come out I will say definitely not.

Too much hassle. Yes it's 'easier than ever' but that's only until something goes wrong and then you find all the standard Mac ways of 'things just working' go out of the window.

Running a hackintosh is only slightly more hassle than running a windows PC, but running a real Mac is a lot LESS hassle than running a windows PC.

Either run windows on PC hardware or run OSX on Mac hardware (or run Windows on Mac hardware).

Please don't try and run OSX on PC hardware. You'll be fine UNTIL something breaks and then you'll regret it.
