Those specs are compatible with all recent OS X versions from, say, Mavericks 10.9 to Sierra 10.12, except the Atheros AR9485 card which is unsupported and will have to be replaced. You'll have to identify the exact specs of your built-in audio + LAN before we can confirm compatibility with OS X but the answer is highly likely to be positive.

You say version 10.9 to 10.12, will it work a previews version?

Ok, so you have:

  • Audio: ALC269 codec -> supported with the ALC269 AppleHDA patch. Look it up on Google.
  • LAN: Realtek RTL8168 GigEthernet -> supported with the associated kext. Look it up on Google.

 

For an alternative to your current wireless card, you can look at a non-exhaustive list of supported models here.

 

You have a SandyBridge platform so support starts at SL10.6.8. You could in theory install Lion 10.7 or ML 10.8 but that will not change anything in terms of supported hardware. Stick to a recent version. I'd recommend you opt straight for Sierra 10.12, especially as it is the current version available off Apple's web site and, like all versions since Mavericks, it's free.
