I'm afraid I can't offer you money or trade but I can offer you some  
good advice. Be *very* careful when buying a G5 Dual CPU model. The  
Liquid Cooled versions have known issues with coolant leaking and  
destroying the CPU module and/or logic board. It's not a total no-go  
area but I'd insist on good photos of a Liquid Cooled machine around  
the CPU coolers and the board where the CPU sockets are to make  
absolutely sure nothing has leaked. I'd also not advise buying one on  
eBay unless someone is getting shot of it because it's started leaking.

Just thought I'd toss that in.

Incidentally, why a G5? Why not a Low-end Mac Pro?
