I've fought long & hard to hold onto the cash long enough to purchase a G5 and the day has finally come! I can finally dump my burnt-out PIII 500 for a dual 2ghz setup...oh the power. Free of Microsofts chains & headaches. I plan on skimping on the RAM & HD upgrade so I can purchase them elsewhere cheaper. Has anyone experienced better results with performance, quality & reliability with certain brands? I'd like tho throw in an extra 250-300gb HD and keep the "stock" 160gb as programs/backup and bump the RAM up to 1-1.5gb from the 512 it will come with. Only thing I'm waiting for now is the 29th when I'm sure to get a system w/Tiger pre-installed.
