The RAM in my beige is all matched IBM double sided 256 MB CL2 PC133. I've been planning to jump ship to a New World machine for a while, for >10.2 and easier *nix installation.
The power supply is also specific to the Gigabit Ethernet/Digital Audio models. ATX hacks won't work without a separate 28v connection.
Thankyou, but see above. There's a step up I can get locally which will put out 26V from a 12V drive line.
Alas, this makes the whole deal a bit more expensive than I first though. I could have just got a working DA shipped down from Sydney. They've been sitting on AU$100-150 for a year or so.
For AGP cards, the official Mac solution for those is the 9800 Pro Mac Edition, but be sure you don't get the G5 specific model.
They can be hacked.

You would need at least a nVidia FX5xx0 or Radeon 9500 or higher model for Core Image compatibility. I'd pass on an nVidia 5200, though. / You'll need at least a 5500 if you plan to go nVidia
Thanks, I'll give that a go.
