I have a G5 PPC (2004 model) with the following specs:


PPC 970 (2,2)

Processor 1,8 GHz (dual)

L2 Cache 512KB

Memory 2 GB DDR SDRAM (PC3200U-30330)

Bus Speed 900MHz

Graphics: NVIDIA GFORCE FX 5200 (AGP) 64 MB

Serial ATA: 150GB


I would like to add a small SSD for the Operating System and Software (about 80GB total)

and keep my original hard drive for my files.


Can you point me to a specific brand or two with the aprropriate tech specs?

(please be advised that it must be something "mainstream" and easy to find, because electronic equipment cannot be shipped to Greece,
so I will not be able to buy it from the internet)!


Thank you!

PowerMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
