    I'm recieving a power mac G5 tomorrow (dual 1.8). it has only a 80GB drive, apparently.

    What kind of hard drive do I need? is it sata? also... because of the apple case, do I need to buy anything special to make it fit?

    thanks!

    I don't own one, so I obviously don't know. :eek:

    Thanks for providing the correct info, cal6n. No more assuming for me.

    Completely wrong. The G5 takes a SATA drive and contains all the mounts necessary for 2 of them. You're thinking of the G4.

    Even posting wrong information is helpful sometimes. People will sometimes ignore a question but I've never met anyone on an internet forum that will pass up a chance to correct bad information when they know the right answer :)

    I know I do :)

    Fastest way to get someone the right answer: Post the wrong answer.

    That's alright. I ran a G5 for nearly 3 years.

    Would the power mac g5, be able to see the whole 500GB on a new drive?
