Powermac G5 2.7ghz (Prefer trade)

Cleaning out my stuff to get ready for a little one... Promised wifey I would keep my IIgs and one last machine, either a Quadra or a IIc+. This G5 has been a bit of a hobby box, but I have used it as a ZFS backup server as well. Outside of a Quad2.5 this is a hot fast PPC and currently the fastest MorphOS box one can get (Though moderately faster video cards are out there).

Here are the Specs:

-Dual G5 2.7ghz (no sign of coolant leakage)

-8GB ram

-60GB OWC Mercury SSD (Currently 1/2 MacOS 10.5, 1/2 MorphOS 3.7)

-32GB 1.8 SSD w/ a 2.5 adapter (Currently FreeBSD 10.1, ZFS on PPC!)


-USB/firewire card

-Radeon 7000 PCI (64mb vram)

-Radeon X800 XT AGP (256mb vram)

no bluetooth/wifi onboard, but will include a USB wifi interface that has MacOS drivers available and work with FreeBSD 10.1 out-of-the-box. Case isn't perfect but isn't an eyesore.

So what do I want out of it?

-Quadra 800 (Maybe 840av?)

-Quadra 950

-Apple IIc+

Machines with some 'kit' are prefered (or maybe a Performa 475 motherboard thrown in). Might take the right cash offer, but really only interested in these machines. Holler to swap pictures. (Please no busted, yeller, stuff)
