PowerMac G5

Here's a link to my price check.
Price Check:Powermac G5

Specifications:
Powermac G5

Processor: Dual 1.8 Ghz PowerPC G5 Processors
Memory/Ram: 5.5GB of memory.
Storage:2 x 500GB Seagate Sata drives (7200RPM)
Video card/GPU:ATI 9600XT
ODD:1 x Superdrive

Currently, there are 2 x 500GB drives in there and I'm asking $300.
Or $250 for a single 200GB drive.

I'm the second owner and I don't have a box with it.
There are some cosmetic scratches on the case.
Currently running Leopard (10.5.8) and it runs decent with the web, videos, office applications and as a server. To be honest though, runs a little slow when used with intensive flash applications but if you use Namaroka, it's alright (might be a safari issue). Measured power usage and on idle, used about 112W and under load around 144W.

Located in Calgary, Alberta and willing to drive anywhere up to a 3 hour radius from here.... Or I can ship it through Canada Post/UPS, Etc. I've also heard that it might be much more affordable if you ship through Greyhound considering how big the package will be.

Note: If you are shipping and don't have the original box, you need to figure out some way to build up the shipping box so that the weight of the the machine is borne on the belly of the machine and NOT on the 4 handles at the corners. If it is dropped and the impact is taken on the aluminum handle, it will bend the (%#$*) out of the case.

Imagine something about the size of a couple of bricks (but some firm but pliant material, not brick obviously), under the bottom and above the top, so that when the Mac is in the box (right side up or upside down), the handles do not touch the box sides at all.
I would start with dense closed cell foam, or if not available, glue up something out of multiple layers of heavy cardboard.

I was thinking of using my 27" iMac box

CanadaRAM gives excellent advice there. I bought a used G5 just over a year ago, and although there was a lot of packing, the top front and bottom back handles took a whack! Thankfully not enough to prevent the case from opening and closing, but enough to make for ugly visuals.
