    Tell me about it. Check out the prices on some of those G4 machines. Those guys must be hitting the pipe! Insane indeed!

    will a Sawtooth power supply work? If so, I might be able to get one for you.

    you may be better off trying to repair your existing one (assuming you have a dead one, and are not trying to put together a frankinmac). Try and find someone who can diagnose the failed component and have them replace it.

    those power supplies are rare and expensive

    There are a ton of quicksilver power supplies on ebay. Like this one
    http://cgi.ebay.com/Apple-Mac-G4-Qu...162710029QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item140162710029

    Or just go to the components section for Apple's on ebay and look at the list of powersupplies available for the quicksilver.

    * Home >
    * Buy >
    * Computers & Networking >
    * Apple Computers >
    * Apple Components >
    * Power Supplies

    You may also be able to hack on from a Digital Audio or Mirror Drive Door since they have the +28V leads. You would just have to swap some cables around since the pinout changes.

    I think the MDD one has a higher wattage rating than the Quicksilver
