High level historical benchmarks of Power Macs
Is there a site where one could look at a high level comparision between each new model Power Mac as they have been coming out through the years? I mean, it would not have to have lots of details, but just enough information to help give an idea on how machines have improved in performance over the years, like what a Dual 1.0 Ghz Power Mac G4 compares with a Dual 2.0 Ghz G5, to a Dual 2.5Ghz G5, all the way to the new Intel Dual Core Macs?
I have a 2004 Dual Core 2.5 Ghz Power Mac, and would like to know how big of a performance improvement I would see if I considering one of the new iMacs or perhaps a new Intel Dual Core Power Macs?
I also have an earlier Dual 1.0 Ghz G4 tower which I use mostly as a music server connected to my stereo (and read emails). It works great but... Would I see a big improvement in performance by replacing it with a new Mac Mini, which would occupy a lot less space! Or should I continue to use it as the improvement would not be that drastic?
is here a site that could be helpful in doing this type of comparisons?
Thanks in advance for any help...

I would be really interesting to see a standardized performance test on the various generations of Power Macs and Mac Pros, but something like that would take a lot to put together. You'd have to come up with a standard and reasonable way to compare all the systems, and have people with those systems to run the tests. Even if the results were not detailed, there are so many variables that can change the performance of system... well it would be tricky.
