I personally like Western Digital drives, but many folks here in this forum also like and use Seagate. I don't think you can go wrong with either.

As far as memory modules are concerned, OWC or Crucial are both reliable and will sell you what ever make of memory you prefer. Both will also tell you which memory to buy for your G5.

Regards.

Agree with above, however like Seagate and they currently have a five year warranty and even here in Australia OWC is the go for memory.

I like Kingston for the RAM. They also make USB Thumb drives.

Seagate for HDD. I've had too many failed HDD from WD cost me my whole photo album for 1 year. T_T"

Hard drives:
  • Seagate had issues last year, I'm wary now. I had one of those 1TB nightmare drives. Luckily I didn't lose anything.
  • Western Digital best.
  • Okay with Hitachi now too, not had problems in past 3 years.
  • Maxtor is garbage.

Kingston for RAM, thumb drives and CompactFlash.

Pretty much any name-brand thumb drive will be fine, such as SanDisk, Verbatim, HP, etc.

Don't hate Windows. Just use Parallels! Best of both worlds!
