    So I acquired this lot of G5's today for nothing, great score huh. I'm trying to see what I have here. I need some help identifying them. How do I know if it's a dual core or dual processor? I know a couple are missing the video cards, and all but one is missing the hard drive. One of the six is working. I'm hoping I can get a couple working units out of these for the kids. Here they are. #6 is the one that works. I also noticed some will take 4 sticks of Ram and some 8. Thanks in advance.

    Those all appear to be either single processor or dual processor models. The dual core models have PCI-e cards instead of PCI or PCI-X and APG cards.

    A single will only have one heat sink. On the model stickers it will give a clock speed (e.g. 1.8 GHz) and will have just the speed if it is a single. If it is a double will say DP for dual processor or DC for dual core.

    Nice find! You can always use the Mac Lookup tool over at everymac.com to search by the last few digits in the serial number. That will tell you exactly what you have.
