    Hello everyone. I have a question about upgrading CPU in my Power Mac G5. I have Dual 2 GHz PowerPC G5 and was thining about changing CPU to Quad 2.5. Is it possible? My model is with DDR2 so i assume its late 2005 or early 2006. What i can upgrade? I have 9GB Ram but could put up to 32 so maybe will do ;)

    In short, no. For all intents and purposes, the CPUs in the G5 PowerMacs are non-upgradeable.
