    A fine machine. Good find on the ADC-DVI adapter.

    I hope you feel guilty, of grand larceny that is.
    Kidding aside, great deal, I paid more then that just for an ADC-DVI adapter off of ebay a year or so ago.

    to be honest I was originally going to get a quad g5.. the 2.5 one.. but at this price you just cant beat it with all the peripherals surrounding it.

    I was looking at a Quad on my local Craigslist for $150 the other night. It didn't have all the goodies like the displays that yours has though...

    It can take four 1 GB sticks for a total of four gigabytes. The RAM must be installed in matching pairs. Your G5 accepts 333 MHz PC2700 DDR SDRAM.

    My first desktop was a 1.6Ghz Powermac G5. I loved that computer, and the only reason I upgraded it was it was becoming too slow for the web. I put tons of hours on it. My parents still use it, though it's becoming less and less useful for them.

    Nice buy! Be sure to post pics when it arrives!

    $130 is a great deal for that whole setup. You did good!
