Hi guys, Ok, here's a bit of background first of all. I've had a 15" 1GHZ G4 Powerbook for around a year and a half now. I love it, I truely do I also have quite a beasty PC that I use for playing games, but have not been playing pc games much lately, so have lost my main reason for using the PC. I just keep using my mac for more and more, hence, bring on the desktop mac A few questions, I really do like having good kit, and I want something that will last me a long while. I'm leaning towards a powermac due to upgradability of graphics & hdd, as well as the faster bus speed of the powermacs. I'll be using it for mp3's surfng the net, general office usage, ripping dvd's video editing (only home stuff, not professional), as well as photo storage and editing, and a little bit of photoshop (although nothing too excessive). I'd like the power for games, and to future proof myself as well, also I may do some music stuff in future (I play bass...would be nice to input that to garageband and play around I suppose). I want a machine that will last me at least two years, I then wish to sell it on and put the money towards another mac. so, without further adeue, here are my questions 1) 2Ghz duel or 2.3 Ghtz duel? I can't think of a reason for pci-x at the moment, but i don't want to be left behind, also, must think of resale value in two years. Also coming from a PC background, I like a high bus speed, and also there is more brag value from saying I own a powermac rather than an Imac 2) Maybe an 20" imac? Heck, maybe it'll do everything I want it to? seeing as you can't upgrade the processor on the G5's anyway, maybe imac is the way to go....but then it's the graphics card issue! 3) I have a decent LG 1720 b 17" tft, but it only has VGA...will this do, and will the colours/quality be up to scratch? 4) I have corsair XML PC3200 Ram in my PC...very good quality ram....this should work in a mac, right? 5) Will it really last?, I'll kick myself if I'm left out in the cold in a years time... 6) Will it keep its value well to sell on? you see my theory is sell it off in two years at lower price (e.g. if bought new for £1500, sell on ebay for £1000 in two years, put money towards new mac). Should this work? Please guys, help a Mac Newbie out! Also, is there anything else I should consider?
