    No one wants to empty their G5 case and sell it because they like whatever's in it way too much ;)

    Heh heh

    try an apple retailer, they may be able to order from apple. but, beware, it will prolly be $500.

    An XBox? Damn, that's almost as bad as the wanker who emptied his brand new G5 and put in a POS athlon mobo. Well, at least you're looking for an empty case to begin with...

    Did you email this question in to The Screen Savers or Call For Help today? Because I swear someone asked that question on there today.

    And then what? 286?

    first a ***** AMD 2200 that is as slow as a snail

    second a dude looking to junk a g5 with MICROSOFT's seXBOX

    we just need BILL GATES to come along and get some G5 PM and Serves over the phone with Stevie and Explain him that he wants to install 286 to run some ugly DOS

    is this a joke or what?

    THIS IS THE MOST CRUEL AND UNUSUALLY PUNISHMENT FOR A G5

    PLEASE NO MORE BILL GATES BRAND INSIDE PM G5 CASES

    mod edit - getting around the profanity filter will get you banned

    You know what... this is just ridiculous. And I am not refering to his idea of putting an xbox in the case, but to everybody that is making a big deal out of this... in the sense that it is a 'bad' thing to do.

    Grow up, its a computer case and if he feels like it, let him put in an xbox. He will have some fun, and have an amazing system to be proud of.

    Also, nolem, if you are serious about this, you might want to put in a few more systems in the case (it is quite large). Or some other kinds of 'mods' that will look amazing.

    P.S. I haven't posted here in forever... although I read it daily.

    Yeah, I agree. Imagine an Xbox, PS2, and a GameCube all in one case. That would be slick.

    cheeky tech-tv monkeys, telling you to go get a PC to watch the clip if you are on a Mac. I'm watching that video now, and guess what, I'm on a mac!

    whats wrong with my Idea anyways, don't you think that would be the ultimate irony? But If its gonna cost 500 bucks i'm over it, maybe i'll get g4 case on ebay, or I can get funding form you guys:rolleyes:

    But if i found a g5 case I bet the screensavers would show it on their show, that would be cool.

    P.S. thanks to all who support me

    It is just most people don't like change. So the first reaction was negative. I happen to be one of those that liked the new case from the beginning. With time the new look tends to increase popularity.

    I hope that you will be successful in your search of a G5 case. I would like to hear when you find a source, nolem.

    It looks like that thing would over heat like crazy.

    Also, I am sure that some company probably makes some cheap knock offs of the G5 case, but I am too lazy to look.

    I doubt that you are going to be able to get one unless maybe you buy a refurbished one or something and sell off the internal parts.

    A Dual 2.0Ghz G5 will make an Athlon 1.8Ghz look slow. Not to say a 1.8Ghz is slow because that is what I have in my computer but it is slow compared to a couple of G5's
