    What do you want to do with it? In most cases it's better to sell the G5 and buy a more recent Mac.

    Even a new Mac Mini will be faster at most tasks.

    I do all kinds of things, photoshop, final cut pro, light room, listing to music ect ect.. I have been wanting to upgrade for a while but it seems like always their is something.. I was going to get rid of it to get a older intel mac but found out the new osx lion will only work in duel intel macs, and now they have the thunderbolt connections coming out.. So I was thinking of holding on for a while longer.. I have max out my ram at 8 gigs and have two 1gig hard drives but I wanted to know whats the best Graphics Card I can get that will work great on that system.

    Due to the age, graphics card are hard to find, and probably not worth the expense.

    So which Apple model would be my safest bet & cheapest older mac to get so I can run lion and maybe get a thunderbolt card when ever they come out
