I've never used a PM G5. I browse the local craigslist & I think more & more PM G5s will be listed as time goes on. ...And for cheap depending on the seller. I've seen a 2.0 DP with 2 17" monitors going for $25! (Posted 8 Days ago...must be gone and seller never deleted it) I keep telling myself I don't need another PPC or any other type of PC added to my mothballed fleet. But I am curious about opinions on the 2003 PMG5 1.8 (PCI-X). I read a little about the 2004 PMG5 1.8 (PCI) with its lower motherboard specs (entry level G5 model). I saw a clean-looking PM G5 Single 1.8 for $49. Actually, I don't know if this one is a 2004 or 2003, unless one could tell by looking at photos. Anyway, right now, I'm not in the market for a G5, so I'm just trying to get a feel for the PM G5's less powerful siblings though not the 1.6 GHz model. Perhaps the single cpu models aren't worth it if cheap duals galore appear. But then that might make the singles even cheaper, lol. Thanks for any info.
