    I have a dual 1Ghz PowerPC G4 MDD. I am oing to order a new MacPro tomorrow and before I customized how much ram I need I wanted to know if I could tranfer my 2 512 chips over to the new machine. Not sure if I gave enough information for an answer but please let me know if that is the case.

    no they wouldn't be compatible with the mac pro machine. If i am not mistaken, g4 powermacs us ddr, mac pro uses ddr2's.

    What about my internal HD's? Will those be compatable with the macpro?

    Nope...the MDD uses PATA drives, while the Mac Pro uses SATA drives.
