    I wouldn't post here, this is a forum dedicated to keeping PowerPC Macs (with their original innards and architecture) alive. There are plenty of other forums dedicated to making a hackintosh out of a G5 case.

    If the 2.7 Ghz PowerMac G5 works I recommend keeping it or selling it and not gutting it... 2.7Ghz G5s are rarer then most and it would be a shame to gut a working one. My Dual 2.7 runs nicely

    I agree-don't kill a working 2.7. There are lots of more common ones that would be a better choice-look for something like a dual 1.8.

    Heres another person saying, Don't kill a working G5, especially a 2.7GHz. If you want to hackintosh a G5, find a broken one or a Single 1.6GHz model.

    Do not kill the machine second time. The first time engineers killed it.

    I'm probably gonna be hackintoshing my dying PowerMac G5

    Don't worry!
    I have another good working G5 that is being handled with lots of care and gets lots of attention :)
