What do you mean by PScs?? The games will run fine, and music will be no problem, evne when using multiple programs. One question, why do you want the 1.6 when you have a 2GHz G5??

Well... I have a point to make.

Unless your gonna be doing something processor intensive and a daily basis, there's little use to own a really high spec machine. For example, if your using a system to surf the net and send emails, then a 2Ghz system is an OVERKILL. For domestic home use, a 1.6 is plenty. Unless your thinking about accessing the latest games, in which case i'd go for 1.8 or maybe a 2.0. and expand the ram to 1 or 1.5Gb RAM tops!

Yeah I have a powerful system, i use it for work, 3D animation and stuff. Where i buy my ram; in China it's dirt cheap. From the monitor, I seldom exceed 3Gb never mined 4Gb... and the other 4Gb... it keeps dust out of the sockets!
