    The HDDs will work fine but I don't think the Blu-Ray drive will work as there is no support for BR on the Macs. The DVD-RW part should work without any problems though. Also that is a SATA optical drive while the G5's/MP's uses the IDE interface so it won't work. It is possible to install a SATA optical drive in a Mac Pro but I don't know about the G5's.
