so,can't seem to find a mobo for my inherited G5 dual2.0..

started thinking if I should start to tinker and throw in a pc mobo and build a hackintosh...

any suggestions where to start looking for the most compatible mobo for the casing? if I understood,none fits straight away but some fits with lesser work than the others? and the power supply should work with the pc mobo,right?

This is the home forum of the Hackintoshers. Certainly a reference point for you.

I remember to have found a special forum for PM/MP case -> Hack conversions in the UK. You will find it if you Google enough.

Be sure to post up any pictures of the process if you decide to do this. I love seeing PC hardware shoved into a Macs :D.

any full size mobo will fit in (although it will have to be mounted upside down). the MP cases can only fit the mini ATX boards.

I was planning on doing the same with my G5 1.6 single. I would get next to nothing selling it so I will just use the case for a linux/hackintosh machine, when I get around to it, some day...
