    I believe the G5 model Damien was referring to is the 1.6GHz model. I concur with him, don't bother with it. It was crippled in more ways than just having fewer RAM slots.

    On the other end of the...

    Oh no! Some forums missing!

    Guys, I'm really sorry to bother you about this. But I just noticed that, among others, the Custom Configurations forum is gone. And it looks like this just happened within the past week, because...

    Well, I went with the G5. Having the abiilty to power dual monitors is just too important to me in my work. I' ve been running it for a couple of weeks now and it's been great.

    Just noticed my message count (for the previous post). Yikes!

    Anyone care to elaborate on how that particular G5's motherboard is crippled? Are we just talking about how it only has four RAM slots...

    G5 vs. Intel

    Either of these are free to me from a family member. Which should I rather have?

    a) PowerMac G5, 1.6GHz, 4GB RAM (one of the first G5s, 2003)

    or

    b) Mac mini, Intel Core Duo (not Core2),...

    Well whadaya know, it worked. I cannibalized the short stubby IDE cable meant for the hard drive to get enough intact pieces for one whole connector, and then got a friend who's done this a number of...

    Well, other than the hard drive ribbon cable, the only other thing I know of that I need for it would be... a hard drive. But I have a line on a Seagate 160GB for about $50-60.

    I appreciate you...

    PowerBook G4 hard drive ribbon cable

    Anyone know a good source where I can get internal replacement parts for a PowerBook G4 without spending an arm and a leg? I recently picked up a 17" Aluminum 1.67GHz (not the one with the high-res...

    OK, the 80-wires vs. 40-wires thing makes sense. It doesn't seem like the size of the HD was an issue, it's only 60GB. Although one thing was kinda surprising- I just pulled that HD to use in a...

  12. Quicksilver 733 processor into Gigabit hack

    Been quiet around here...

    So last year I got an old Gigabit Ethernet G4 when a friend's office was being closed. I think I gave 'em $40 for it. (At the same time, I got a PowerBook Duo 2300c, with...

    Weird network issue

    Yup, I'm on top of that. The Quicksilver only has 3 RAM slots anyway. Right now they have the two 256s it came with and the 512 I added to make 1GB. I'm probably going to pick up two 512s to replace...

    Already replaced that 64MB stick with a 512 to get it up to 1GB. I'll probably buy a couple more 512s to max it out before too long. Also I've long since "retired" SCSI drives from normal use in my...

    These are not the Macs you're looking for.

    Sorry, add an LC III to my list, I had one left to unpack.

    Why are my posts getting double sigs?
