Good. Keep us posted. In my Mac Pro days updated a 2.1 to quad core using Intel CPU's. Best advice is to clean CPU's with cotton bud and alcohol swab and use Arctic Silver on the CPUs. Also you might keep a lookout for a better graphics card. The 8800 did have failure problems.

Suggest buying Snow Leopard OS X.6 from Apple at $20 posted and you will have a disc for trouble shooting. From there using the App Store you can update to Mountain lion if you wish.

Purchased Bluetooth and Airport Extreme cards through eBay if desired. Get them for about $20 each or so.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
