Tell me about it! I am hesitant to put any money into the dual 533, as that money would be better spent on an mdd or a replacement logic board for one of the G5s.

check to see if the white light blinks. If so, the number of blinks will indicate what a potential problem is. The 2005 G5s were plagued with issues relating to the solder joints of the RAM slots.

The only infamous issue with the 7,2 and 7,3 were the faulty solder joints on the ram slots. This causes all ram to report as bad (3 blinks) I have a G5 suffering from this.
