    I just won a Dual 2.5 on ebay with 4gb of ram, a 160gb HD and a ATI Radeon 9600 XT 128MB Video Card for 200$

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/33071878702...X:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649#ht_3528wt_1398

    after I bought it I looked into it some more and noticed that this version was known to have liquid cooling problems. How common is this problem?

    and if it were to spring a leak later on down the road could the graphics card, ram and HD be transferred over to a dual 2.0 G5?


    Thanks!

    Most of the G5s that have liquid cooling have had problems, have problems, or will get problems as they age. The graphics card, ram, and hard drive can be put into a 2.0Ghz PowerMac G5.

    That's awesome! But we don't know what will happen with your machine further down the road and of course there's always exceptions that proves the rule.
