Thread: Trying to buy a Mac but...

In my opinion...this is a pretty awesome price for what you get! Heck...check some e-Bay listings for Powermac G5 parts (power supply, the computer housing, airport card, etc.)...and many of those exceed $100 for a single part.
We usually suggest staying away from the Powermac G5 "quads"...they have water-cooling systems that tend to leak or get plugged up...which never leads to happy endings.

That Old G5

Well all that is true, but since I do a lot of graphics and used the late great G5 when it first appeared and a while after, I can tell you that some Pro models are "souped up" with a lot more inside than the standard ones most people used. So it is possible (depending on where this one originally started life at) that it does have some of the capability described. I also have a G3 running Jaguar, also a souped up graphics Pro machine, and no, it's not slower than molasses, but it doesn't run all the newest programs, and the G5 might not either.
