    In 2003, I purchased the first model of Power Mac G5s. Its was a dual 2.0, but I remember little else about the specs.

    Around 2008, it wouldn't boot. The apple store did a general look at it and determined that it was either an issue with one of the processors, the graphics card, or the mother board; all carried a huge price tag to be fixed. (went with a mini instead and have been happy since). The machine has remained unused and inoperable since then and I've decided to turn the case into a shelf for routers, base stations, hard drives, etc.

    There are a couple of parts that I'll be removing and wanted to offer them up to anyone who'd like them. These parts certainly might not work any longer.
    - RAM chips (two, i think 512mb each)
    - Airport extreme card
    - Graphics card
    - Might come across other parts as I remove things

    I'm not all that interested in packaging and mailing, so if anyone is nearby in CT I'd probably prefer a quick drop off...

    Where in CT are you? I am interested in the airport and Bluetooth cards and antennas if the drive is not too far.

    I am all the way up in the NE corner on the MA border.

    Hello! Currently, my Mac Pro needs an Extreme Card, how much would you want for it? I'd have to pay for shipping, but a bubble envelope would be more than suffice.

    Make sure you have the right model G4 iMac. Only the 1Ghz and 1.25Ghz models use the Airport Extreme card.

    Its the 1.25, I checked. Can you confirm the MacPro/PowerMac Extreme Cards are different? I have the 1st Gen Mac Pro.

    They are different. The Mac Pro card is a mini-PCIe card where the G5 card is PCI based and they are not compatible. However, the Bluetooth board is compatible. But the G5's stock board is only Bluetooth 1.x.

    Ah, okay. Thanks Intell. I love how fast the extreme cards are, even for their age. I've got one rocking in a new to me iBook right now.

    Okay so I'm a little late too the thread, but what is still available? I would be interested in the Ram and the Airport card/antenna.

    What about the different card for the late 2005 G5, is that the same as the early Pro?

    Those are completely different. I had one of these special late 05 cards from a iSight iMac and it didn't fit in my 1,1 Mac Pro. The Mac Pro also went back to how it was with the early 2005 G5, two separate cards.
