    So, I finally decided to buy a G5 after wanting one since 2003. Anyway, here are the specs.

    CPU: Dual 1.8GHz G5
    HDD: Removed
    RAM: 4GB
    No OS
    Super Drive

    I got it for $107. Any idea if that's a good price?

    I plan on overclocking the CPUs, for which I have CPU pinouts and schematics.
    Anyway, I'll post back if I successfully overclock this thing.

    $107 is a pretty good price; assuming it came with an FX5200?

    Sounds like a good way to blow it up. Granted, its not like you'll be losing much if you only spent $107 on it. Thats a really good deal with 4GB of RAM installed. Typically I would expect one that cheap to either have nothing or maybe 512MB.

    Good deal, no doubt. I'll be waiting for your OC'ing report. It would be really something if you'll get success with it. Good luck!
