    So I bought the stupid run way card for my G5 (runaway card or whatever) from We Love Macs and they totally dissed me on the 2-cent screws that hold the Aiport Combo Card on. So I call tem and they say "Oh yea, we sell those on our site" And here they are...


    Standoff for the Combo Card (661-3692)

    I highlighted in red the problem with all of this.:rolleyes:
    Can I not get these things at any hardware store, or do I have to fork over $33 (yes, 8 dollar shipping!) to these jerks?

    I couldn't find one on the website. :(

    What kind of G5 are you talking about? I have the plastic things for the G5 late 2005 for the combo bluetooth 2.0 and airport extreme little card.

    Never saw those standoffs in a Powermac before, either the PCIe or PCIx version.

    Who wouldn't LoveMacs for such a golden opportunity to push a 10000% profit sale to the needy crowd?

    Note to self: never, ever, ever buy anything from those ripoff artists.


    They must also be the ones that just suggested to Apple that they offer a 2TB drive option in the BTO Mac Pros and jack up the price to $500.00 :rolleyes:

    I just stack up double side tape… and you can find stand offs at a local hardware store… or if you don't mind ones that don't as good, you can get standard hex shaped standoffs for like 10¢ a pop.

    The nylon versions are also inexpensive.

    WeLoveMacs for the dumb suckers who buy Apple branded standard PC parts at 3 times the market price. And if they are low price items we make sure we rip you off anyway to make it profitable.
