This had to be a thread. I'll start off with a rare iMac G5 I bought on eBay. Sure, these are dumpster fires, but cool to have! May have paid a bit too much, haha.
Pretty sure these do suffer from a hint of bad caps. Not as bad as the ones that came before it, but probably not reliable either.I had to replace the power supply in my 2.1GHz iMac G5 but after I did that, it was fine.
An Adaptec 29160N would do the job. I bought one locally from a used computer store for $2.95, plus tax. Had the Mac firmware on it.Got some 146.8 gig U320 drives in. Would be great to use these in my QuickSilver once I get it to a workable state again. Anyone know of a cheap SCSI card for these macs? I have heard of the UL4D cards but those cost a fortune.
