So, I finally decided to buy a G5 after wanting one since 2003. Anyway, here are the specs.

CPU: Dual 1.8GHz G5
HDD: Removed
RAM: 4GB
No OS
Super Drive

I got it for $107. Any idea if that's a good price?

I plan on overclocking the CPUs, for which I have CPU pinouts and schematics.
Anyway, I'll post back if I successfully overclock this thing.

$107 is a pretty good price; assuming it came with an FX5200?

Sounds like a good way to blow it up. Granted, its not like you'll be losing much if you only spent $107 on it. Thats a really good deal with 4GB of RAM installed. Typically I would expect one that cheap to either have nothing or maybe 512MB.

He blows it up he can make his money back 3 times over by parting it. :P

Good deal, no doubt. I'll be waiting for your OC'ing report. It would be really something if you'll get success with it. Good luck!
