    Old Powermac SATA drives
    I have one of the older power mac G5s (1.8 GHZ, single proc). It has two slots for SATA drives. Will just any old SATA drive work, or do I need a mac specific one. I've found some really good deals on SATA drives at places like newegg (129 bucks for 500gb). They say SATA, 3.0gbps. Will these work?
