Hello again all....! So a person knowing I am fond of Macs and tinkering, bring me a PowerMac G5 2.7 DP to check it out. I thoroughly tested the machine and the FireWire 400, FireWire 400 and USB 2.0 ports are all dead/failing. Contact a friend of mine with a private Mac workshop and he can sell me a motherboard for this model for $350. Also the person wants to add wireless capability to the machine. So, I come for advice in these questions: a)- What would be better: Buy the motherboard or PCI cards with USB and FireWire ports? If buying the cards, what do you suggest (brands/models)? b)-About the wireless, can it be done? What I have to look/search or buy? Recommendations? As always, I appreciate the help/pointers/advice and thank you so much in advance.
