Re: G5PC

You didn't mention why?

And what OS?

Re: G5PC

My assumption was since he's giving it a "hackintosh" label, he's running an x86 version of OS X.

I quite like it. Nice job using part of the existing power supply case, and fitting part of another motherboard case inside the G5, rather than drilling out new standoffs, etc.

My only quibble was the back panel looks rough, but maybe that was an 'in progress' photo.

Re: G5PC

After too many tryouts, this machine suits a MacOS X 10.6.7 and now a dual monitor, fully QE and CI compilant!

Nice, isn't it?

Re: G5PC

Why?, because this is a wonderfull case, and the original hardware (one of the original CPU) was broken...
