you should find RAM that is labelled as being compatible with a g5 mac, you can get it on the well know auction site 'flea'-bay (dunno if you're allowed to post the real name) as for the hard drive you can use a standard SATA hard drive, i just installed a 1TB one in my dual 2.5 so i'm sure 500GB will be ok
QUOTE Thanks
