Ok, so I want to know the best method to keep the inside and out of the G5 looking exactly the same as if it were straight from Apple

I mean, it doesn't explain which points I need to solder what cables to, and I'm pretty much a complete n00b at rewiring and such

Here's a scan of the front and back of the relevant areas of a G5 mainboard:

You'll need to use a multimeter to ascertain which solder points correspond to the correct connector pins of each port. Don't forget to twist the USB and Firewire data lines.

Here's a handy reference: http://pinouts.ru/
