Well, since everybody is showing off what they built, this is what we put together at work. It's a dual Xeon 2.8. It does not run OSX yet, but we hope we can get it going.

Dunno where he got his from, but such cases can be found regularly on ebay.

It was a case that had a bad serial power connecter, so it had to be replaced. The backside of the G5 case is cut out, and we mounted a standard ATX frame and backside in it. It turned out really nice I think. I will take some picks of the backside later.

any seen this?

looks pretty nice.

Yep, I agree. That's the first solution I have seen yet that I would call aesthetically pleasing from the ground up. Really nice work. Unlike the dreadful example from above, this miserable piece of trash, held together with nuts and bolts. Puzzles me why people with such a bad taste are keen on getting a PowerMac G5 case.
