I agree with harry. Have a look at the Geekbench thread on the forum.

A Mac Pro 1.1 is on par with around 2010 MBP 15", and the Powermac Quad (the best available) comes in at the same score as a mobile Core 2 Duo chip.

So while i don't agree with it being "darn close to the Mac Pro", I do agree it could be a viable solution if you don't need to run intel apps. Its a decent enough CPU score, and certainly a useable one.

but i think buying a PM G5 now is a complete waste of money as a proper computer, because its dead-end hardware. Why limit yourself?
