It's not necessary to get a PCI sled just to support an LHE card. Depending on the functionality you're taking from it you could easily get the same thing from one of the newer AJA Thunderbolt devices such as an Io XT.

Rather then go the Hackintosh route you'd simply sell the LHE, select the appropriate Thunderbolt equivalent, avoid the PCI sled entirely and achieve a much faster workflow with the way faster RAM, CPU and GPU of the new Mac Pro. Or keep it and the older Mac Pro as a backup system/assistant/render workstation.

I suspect your IT guy would agree that supporting an off the shelf Apple configuration is going to be more straightforward than a customized PC rig hacked to run OS X but your mileage may vary.
