Donít get me wrong, Iím sure G5 is a great computer, but I wanted a Dell for Christmas. I donít have any programs for Apple and didnít feel like waiting for them. I thought about selling it, but my parents would be upset with me. After all, this was a very expensive gift and it meant a lot to them to give to me.

not just a G5. a dual G5. this is just... just... sad. it's akin to gutting a high end BMW so you can put the body on an entry level KIA.

I can understand why...


Anyway, I seen this done before, but the guy that I saw do it actually bought the G5 case only.

EDIT: Look at this....

Itís a good thing my parents donít know anything about computers, because Iím sure they would be really angry if they knew what I did. I have to say that I&#39;m happy - I can keep on using XP.

The board is a Biostar Micro ATX, with a 2200 Athlon XP with an Adaptec 29160 SCSI controller and two 36 GB Atlas 10K V hard drives. I am stuck using the onboard video because there is no AGP slot. I had no money for a SATA controller and quite honestly, I swear by SCSI (the G5 comes with SATA drives).

In the future, I want to get an Athlon 64 board and CPU with AGP support for a decent video card.

I use it mostly for Internet, ripping music/DVDs and pissing off my friend.

I put all the parts from the G5 into a box and gave it to my friend. He was rather happy. I think he is going to try to install them into his G3 - I hope he&#39;s successful.


So, he gets a £2,500 monster bastard computer (who the hell cares if its a MAC&#33;?).

He spends about £200 on a crap AMD Thoroughbred setup (no AGP port&#33;? what is this guy on&#33;?), then gives away the excellent parts to his friend.

I want to go to this guy&#39;s house, and laugh. Nothing else, just stand there, and laugh.

maybe i&#39;m just crazy... but sort of like when i receive a shirt that doesn&#39;t quite fit, my first reaction (though i wouldn&#39;t mind having a dual G5) would be to just tell my parents that i appreciate their effort, but i&#39;d rather return it to the shop, pick out a computer on my own, and give them back whatever money&#39;s leftover (which would prolly be a lot). would that just make too much sense?

although... if i ever asked my family to buy me an expensive computer of any sort, they woulda told me i&#39;m out of my friggin&#39; mind. :lol:

He went about it wrong, he are the proper steps.

1. Ebay.

2. Whatever you want.

The g5 case is stupid anyway, you could buy whatever you want after selling the G5&#39;s.

Stupid idiot....I would have put the thing on ebay, with pictures of it still in its polystyrene packaging, brand new untouched retail G5, and put it 500 quid below list price, and watch it fly out...they get a new G5 500 pounds cheaper, I get the money to make a killer rig I want.

his name is probly neotheone lol

what an asshole&#33; he RUINED IT&#33;&#33;&#33;

EdIt: if he really wanted to use XP, couldnt he just use Microsoft&#39;s VirtualPC? it slaps XP onto a mac&#33;

would have saved some good cash... what a fucking shithead&#33;&#33;&#33;

We care, because he cored a £2,500 Apple monster PC, filled it with some craps, and gave away dual 2 GHz processors, a 9800PRO, 2 SATA drives and more away to his friend&#33;

EDIT: Not only this, he stuck some of the PC in with velcro.

Mr Bond -True, but "Progress" normally goes the other way.
Anyway got some Mac buddies who will cry when they see this.

I&#39;m guessing that you&#39;ve never used a MAC, and that you&#39;re just a Windows fanboy.

I&#39;ve used them before, it wasn&#39;t bad, at all.
The only problem is the crashes, at least Windows can sort of recover from them without a direct reset.

Hah&#33; Have you even been on a Panther OS Mac? I have nearly 100 hours logged on them and none have crashed on me, the OS just doesnt crash, its that stable.

The only things that will make a Mac crash these days, is bad software, and a sharing violation with files that a program is trying to use, but cant because of insufficent access priveleges, so it keeps trying to access it, thus, it locks up.

Well i think you have wasted a shit load of money. If you really want to know what i would have done, you will have to read on.

Apple Mac i hate them really do, but give them credit they are used in all major stunts & video editing in major films like unverisal studio, fox etc, check any film studio as they use apple mac&#39;s...Why, casue they where the first to get hyper-threading in there units.


£2500 Apple Mac, geezs what do you say to this guy? Did ya win the lottery? Well personally i would have flogged the dam unit at £1500, at that you could get a awesome PC with ya DAM XP on. Well i hope you parents ain&#39;t going to computer school as they would freak out proberly spending that much on a computer & you fine tuning it.

Also you taste in CPU & board, why the hell did you get a AMD at that speed? Why didn&#39;t you get a AMD 64bit or A Pentium 4Hyper-threading? Also the apple mac was a dual processer, would piss all over your AMD.


Well i&#39;am sure someone in the thread previously said you could have got Windows XP on ya MAC, but you dam Fool.


I bet ya m8 is jumping up & down with that new Apple of his since it&#39;s expensive kit you gave him.

Also it glows green, wow it really makes up the fact you basically did a crappy DIY on ya comp case to fit a PC board in there. It&#39;s like putting a 1.0 litre engine in a Austin Martin DB7 ya fool.


I proberly could babble on for life at this guy.


P.S. You are a complete idiot, all i can say my laughter will echo towards you.

If anything I would of kept it and used it as a server. Personally I don&#39;t like macs that much but what he did makes me sad.

If you really don&#39;t like OSX you could always install linux on it.


Also when I used to do video editing on a G4 with Avid Xpress 3.5.4 It crashed a whole lot. At least once a day. But I was dealing with over 300 gb of video files over 3 firewire hard drives so I dunno.

Ed NOTE: I just received this email from Andy:

"I have been feeling a little guilty about causing so many people out there to have nightmares, depression and sickness from my little joke. The reaction of people word wide has blown me away. I never intended for such a thing to happen.

My in box went from 1% to 100% in 2 days (1300 messages). So many people were pointing out what a stupid thing to do, so many people were telling me of feeling sick, some even said they cried. I felt bad for those people. It was amusing to read things like "I should be hung by my testicles and lit on fire" or the constant reference to "Taking a Porsche and replacing the engine with a KIAs". Most people cried out in horror and carefully pointed out the error of doing such a silly thing.

I am sure you are wondering why this all took place.

Are the pictures real? Yes.
Is it my own G5 case that has been cut and hacked? Yes.
Did I give away two G5 2GHz processors (IBM PC 970)? No&#33;
So what happened?

I got a free G5 shell from a buddy of mine and pulled a prank on a Mac loving friend. He got so upset. I wrote up a little story, my imagination and warped sense of humor kicked in. I sent it to OC.com just to see the reaction. I honestly didn&#39;t think it was going to be posted. I cannot believe how fast or how far it has spread on the internet. There are an amazing number of people who are emotionally attached to inanimate objects such as computers. Mac fans seem to be much worse that I ever expected. The G5 is amazing, I would never dream of really doing that ;)

Andy - G5 Killer"
