    There were a lot of G4s that looked like that. You'll just have to sort through the Power Macs G4 and find the one that matches your computer's specs/date of purchase.

    Buy a SATA controller card for it? Will take away any uncertainty regarding max capacities supported by your machine etc...

    Can you return it or sell it? A SATA controller for a G4 is going to cost you about as much as another hard drive.

    I believe just about any 3.5" IDE/ATA hard drive will do for G4 towers.
