I have an older dual G5 1.8 GHz tower circa 2004/2005 currently with only two 80GB drives but want to upgrade to 1TB. Anyone recommend any particular drives?

...they have good prices & should have something that will satisfy your needs.

Try this one it is on special:-
1.0TB Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000.C 'Jupiter' 7200... (0F10383) at OWC
It is SATA II and reportedly backwards compatible with SATA I which is the speed of your G5. Usually this works automatically but have seen a couple that require to be 'throttled' back. You do this by using jumpers. See the manufaxturer's wen site for this if you have any problems.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!
