    SATA or SATA2? G5 iMac
    Hi guys,
    I have decided my hard drive is dead and need to get another. Due to the urgency of things I can't wait for online delivery and need to get one off the shelf... this is the model of my (pre-intel) iMac http://www.everymac.com/systems/appl...g5_1.8_20.html

    and this is the drive I can get locally and quickly http://www.pcworld.co.uk/martprd/sto...&category_oid= but I have conflicting info on the G5 iMac supporting SATA2... and I'm no hardware expert.

    Any advice would be great thanks!

    That drive will work, incidentally, there is no such thing as SATA II

    There is a ton of info there!
