My setup I picked up last night. Dual 2GHz G5 tower and 22" Cinema display I nabbed off Craigslist. Pretty excited about it!

I just found the picture of my Christmas setup a few years back. Really want to do this to my G5 again. Probably not good for it, haha.

That is completely awesome! I love christmas decorations and computers. I had a similar setup the last few holidays, but I put the lights around the screen instead. And of course made all icons on the desktops to big high resolution christmas presents. Soon it's time again, I can't wait. If anyone else than us likes this we should start a "Christmas decorated PowerPC Macs"-thread just for the heck of it.

That'd be awesome. I'm just thinking about how awesome it would be to wrap the iMac G4 in lights now.

Nice. :P Pretty awesome how someone can have the same Apple products, yet the set-up looks totally different. :P

I'd love my G5 on the desk but it'll break the desk as it's so damn heavy as the desk won't support it. :P

Nice setup! You know with the right adapter you can hook up the 24 inch or 27 inch LED Cinema Display for a rocking great system! I too have a G5 Quad, built in 2006 with the single pump. Its a beast of a machine and a nice one at that.

The only issue I have with it is that the LAST CPU B core 2 diode is reporting a temperature reading of 10-15 degrees higher than the rest of my CPUS. I checked my Quad for any leaks - NO leaks thank gawd!(Quad G5 had the more reliable LCS), but what could be causing the temperature to stay at 10-15 degrees higher?

I know that this machine is 6 years old.. I forget what the longevity of the thermal paste is on the G5 processors, do you know?

Also, where can I get 64-bit software optimized to run on the G5 using 64-bit?

I will post my machines shortly, for now I have the following:

G5 Quad 4 x 2.5 PowerPC G5 , G4 Pismo 550(was G3 500), PowerBook G4 1.67 which I use for my main computer when not at home. My server machine for all my computers is a 6-core Mac Pro running at 3.33 ghz.

I might pick up another G4 PowerMac to complete my collection, I was looking at the MDD G4 1.25 Dual.

You can connect a 27" LED Display to a G5 with an adapter?

Link to said adapter please?

Muchas gracias, Saludos.

The one I have is by Kanex.. I got it from Other World Computing. Mine is the older model which supports 24 inch LED Cinema Display, but yes.. you can get the model supporting the 27 inch LED display.

It looks great! My G5 loves it!

Thanks! I got the 22" ACD + G5 Tower (specs in sig) for $200 off Craigslist. Thing still flies!

I was lucky enough to have an iMovie HD project pending, and with it being a PowerPC application, the G5 ate the HD video up! So satisfied with my purchase

I just took these. Setup the iMac yesterday, dug through my massive computer storage/graveyard and pulled the PM G4 QS out. My first Mac ever is sitting under the desk. Just need a screen now and the PM will be taking the place of the iMac.

I had three computers as my daily machines which made it really messy. Some bookmarks on one of the computers, a few files on the other (I use dropbox for most files but I have movie projects and what not that just isn't a good idea to sync through dropbox) and other bookmarks on the third. I decided to put away yet another one (my walk-in closet is filled with PowerMacs, iMacs and random laptops by now) in favor of this setup. It's a PC as my main, yes, but I kind of have to do it this way for a while. I need to do heavy movie editing for school and my PC is the only machine capable. And my PowerBook G4. I just can't put it away. So it serves as my only PPC for the time being.
Thumb resize.

It's Fractal Design's Define R4. They come in black as well, but I chose Arctic White.

Pros: Lots of storage possibility, many places to put fans, it's quiet as a mouse, it's cheap and the overall space in it is very nice.

Some pics from my old PPC days. Man I wish I had back 95% of those systems.
I had everthing from PM G5's to iBook Clamshells and PB G4's. I've had 4 1Ghz Titanium's, one was so nice I think I was the the first person to use it, not turn it on and put it away.
