So I got this carved-up Power Mac sittin' in a PC case servin' up hot hard drive lovin'. The bad thing is that the RAID card is fakeraid and I'm running 7 HDs in RAID-5, which means the CPU is constantly pegged.

I don't want to mess up a good thing, so after an aborted attempt at switching it over to a PC-based system, I really just want to get a CPU upgrade. I need something at least 1GHz in magnitude, preferably 1.5GHz or dual-something. I don't think I can afford anything much more than that, unless someone is feeling generous.

Must be Sawtooth compatible.

I have to trade:
- iPod nano (5G, black, perfect shape) w/ armband, box, all packaging, etc.
- 2x120GB 2.5" LaCie external hard drives, great shape.
- Sawtooth stock AGP card
- Mac-compatible 3-antennae Wireless-N PCI card
- David Lynch's Eraserhead (http://ecomm.davidlynch.com/catalog/dvd_ehead.php)(mint)
- David Lynch's Short Films (http://ecomm.davidlynch.com/catalog/dvd_short.php) (mint)
- PCI 2-port Firewire card (not sure if it's Mac-compatible or not)
- stock PPC G4/450MHz and Heatsink, ha ha ha
- Apple Pro Keyboard (really ****** condition)

I'm also willing to pay cash, although I can't afford much right now what with the holidays, suicidal pets, sex change, etc. Work with me. I don't wanna hafta sell all this stuff on eBay just to buy something from OtherWorldComputing, but I will if I have to.

Great trading partner. Really top-notch fella. :D

Traded some PC parts for some HDs, all HDs arrived quickly, well packaged, and are working beautifully.

Eh, I'm seeing them for a couple hundred bucks on eBay. eBay doesn't accept trades, though :( ;) OWC doesn't either, sadly.
