I am seeking a bit of advice here. My current setup: Dual 2.0Ghz G5 5.5 GB RAM 150GB HD 64MB GeForce FX 5200 The problem: When i first got this thing a couple of years ago, it SMOKED. I mean it was fast. But lately it's just rediculously slow. When working in photoshop i stare at the spinning icon all the time just doing stupid standard tasks like clicking a tool, etc. Also i just hear the hard drive working like a dog. I've tried to repair it a few times, but it hasn't really helped. It's just not the same machine anymore and feels like a dog. Recently i upped the ram to 5.5gb but that did nothing. Im convinced it's just from years of hard drive abuse. My plan: I'm going to install 2 new dual 500gb internal drives... and a new 512mb video card, as well as a fresh install of OS X, hoping to put everything back to normal as if the machine is new again. I'm just wondering if it's a waste of time and money. Once i put all my files back on the drives will it just be the same as it is now? I just don't understand how it seemed so fast a few years ago and pretty crappy now. I am a web designer and only work with 72dpi files in photoshop so i think dual g5's should be plenty fast for me. I want to avoid spending $5k on an all new mac pro. any advice is appreciated. thanks!!
