Hi everyone,

I have been using an iBook G4 for some time now and its getting overloaded with my music and photos so I want to move all my stuff over to a desktop machine. I was thinking that a secondhand G5 power mac would be in my budget but I am undecided on which CPU type to go for....... Dual core or Dual CPU???

The G5's in question both have a 2.0GHz clock with 2Gb ram.

As far as I understand the Dual core systems use DDR2 533MHz ram compared to DDR1 400MHz ram for the Dual CPU, also the dual core systems are capable of taking up to 16GB of ram.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as my poor over worked G4 iBook is begging me to get some data off her!
