    I am willing to bet that OS X would recognize it, but I doubt it'd be able to boot from it. Hopefully someone else will be able to verify this.

    I am assuming it would. But there will be no use for it if it will not serve as a boot drive. It will going to be a very expensive scratch disk.

    The ocz drives do not boot the MP. I don't know it they're the same but I'm inclined to believe they are.

    But the PCIe drive is quite enticing to make a monster powermac G5. If it can be a boot drive, then boot up and app launch would be blazing fast, because it is not restricted to SATA I. I have 2 SSD on RAID0 but it still feels lacking since the SATA interface will not even saturate the drives.
