I've got a Power Mac G5 Quad and I haven't made any hardware upgrades since I bought it 4 years ago. I want to make this computer last as long as possible so I was hoping someone on this forum could help me figure out the best way to upgrade my PC. Also, please provide me with links to where I can get the hardware that you recommend. The biggest issue I'm having is with my internal hard drive - It's only 250GB. So I've had to depend on my 1TB external hard drive a little more than I'd like. I've gone ahead and added all my computer specs for you to look at. Thank you so much in advance!
