Where great old Macs live again!

Just won an ====>Apple Power Macintosh G5 2.7 DP (PCI-X)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/380405651786?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_...

the only thing that worries me is this:

this model adds a liquid cooling system that replaces the traditional heat sink. Custom configurations also were available.

but they show it working... so if it has a leak, i might still be able to fix it.

I've always wanted one of these!

Great find. I got a 1.8GHz single core G5 for $41.00. Only thing bad was the shipping cost more then the machine. Only needed to add RAM and a SATA hard drive that I had to get it working. I love this machine. I always wanted one.

i just got it home, fired it up,    lol it didn't come on.  i blasted out the PSU, the main board, pulled the ram out and blasted out the 8 ram slots... pulled out that 6800 gt video card, man that thing is massive!,  blew that all out,   all back together and it booted right up!    this thing is fast,  10.5.8, the gui responsiveness is close to this brand new Sandy intel i3 system i am running!  has the same amount of ram 8Gig's

It's not really a "win" if you have to pay for it.  But it sounds like it was a good deal!
