    It would be better to spend an extra $100 on a Mini.

    PCI and PCI-X are dead, you won't find much useful hardware to work with them on a Mac. If you want a G5, the PCI-e models are what to get (Late 2005).

    How can you make such a claim? There are all kinds of PCI cards out there, and many companies still make them. Just because PCI-e is newer, doesn't mean it has completely replaced all other standards.
