Yea, the fans look strange in that G5...It's weird how every G5 I've seen looks slightly different in other peoples set-ups

Computers like cars, bicycles, watches, and partners reflect a persons values. Mine sits on the adjacent desk a left arm reach away from the optical and in front a window to let the heat out..
No idea where you can get from the UK, but even here in the US the prices are unreasonable for used ACD.Any ideas where I can get one in the UK?
What's a Jive?
The jive to me ruins the case, in a way.No idea where you can get from the UK, but even here in the US the prices are unreasonable for used ACD.
The link to the "Jive"...
I have the late 2005 (which is the last version of powermac made) 2.5GHz Quad Powermac G5. Unfortunately, it has PCIe only expansion slots and PCIe graphics card.I didn't think there were any PCIe ports on a G5.
If you really wanted a complete setup... it is hobby, is it? And an expensive hobby.Looks like I might have to spend 350 UK pounds on a 23" Cinema Display
Is it worth me buying the 23" ACD or whatever monitor Apple brand I can use?Right it never ends but for me there is this last item, if I will have the HK Soundsticks this month then this Powermac G5, I am done with it and will move on to another project.
Both of my Powermac G4 MDD DP FW800, has iSight, Apple Cinema Displays, Apple pro keyboards, Apple Pro Mice, PCI USB Cards and Apple Pro speakers to match.
My 2009 Mac Mini has its own Apple Cinema Display, wireless keyboard, iSight and Magic Mouse.
As much as possible I keep the all genuine setup. It is a collection.
First my apologies to the OP for the off topic replies.Is it worth me buying the 23" ACD or whatever monitor Apple brand I can use?
It's a damn shame I can't get a 24/27" Cinema LED Display to work on the G5 It sucks haha.
What Mac do you use the most and why? The G5? It'd be nice to have the full Apple set-up though.
No worries at all!First my apologies to the OP for the off topic replies.
Anyway, to continue on.
When I am back home the Powermac G5 quad got the most attention. The 2.3 dual core that it replaced is now sitting on the attic, if anything happens on my quad I can just replace it with the dual core.
Why? Because I really like using it, browsing the internet, emails and stuff. I can't seem to remember I have seen beach balls using the power mac. Illustrator opens on a single bounce, Final cut opens on 2 bounces. Almost everything is instant.
I have a mac mini and a macbook, I use the macbook when I am travelling because of the xp VM that I use for work. If not I will be lugging my powerbook all the time. My mac mini, well it is there as a media server and just there for trying new stuff. Most of the time it is asleep.
It is all up to you. For that kind of money, yes it is expensive. If you can hold and wait for a better deal then wait. You don't really need it, you only want it. You still have a monitor to hook up to it, am I right?No worries at all!
The person who I spoke to lowered the price of the 23" ACD down to £325... is this a fair deal? I'm not sure what this is in dollars.
I need that 23" ACD, then I can have a near complete set-up
£325 seems awfully expensive, since for anoither £502 I could buy another Thunderbolt Display but I need this for my G5 ; thoughts?
Yeah true, it does sound expensive. Apple products do hold their value, it'd be nice to have my 12th Apple product though.It is all up to you. For that kind of money, yes it is expensive.
