so i recently purchased a g5 tower with these system specs.

Model Name: Power Mac G5
Model Identifier: PowerMac7,2
Processor Name: PowerPC 970 (2.2)
Processor Speed: 1.6 GHz
Number Of CPUs: 1
Memory: 4 GB
Graphics: NVIDIA Geforce Fx 5200 64 meg Graphics card (i know the graphics card blows no i dont have 500.00 to replace it for now this is going to have to do)

Hard drive: ST3500418AS 500 gig hard drive


So i decided time for some modding.

here is what i did so far.

installed new 4 gig ram upgrade because didn't like the garbage memory in the machine remember this is a used machine after all

installed a 4 port usb high speed card (belkin eliminated the need for a hub)

installed a 7.1 usb surround sound card (a lot better then the one installed in the g5 towers and i have bass)

purchased a card reader with 3 ports usb hub on it now expanded my usb from 4 ports to 6 ports minus one for the reader

upgraded to a apple super drive (still need a better drive super drive doesn't burn dual layer dvd disk's)

so this is what i did so far??

what do you think???

should I add another hard drive???

is there somewhere i could purchase the screws for the hard drive as this powerpc macintosh didn't come with it's spare screws for another hard drive.
