check out this link and scroll to the bottom where the guy has a desktop snap of his G5 with 14 Gigs of DDR ram...hmmm must have a VERY good job at something!

and check out his link for something hilarious...I noticed in that desktop picture above the url in the guys web browser...it kinda intrigued me about the end of the world...so I typed it in to my browser and went to the site...pretty funny flash animation (I think) so check that out to!...I am not really posting...it's my not so evil twin :D

that looks fake to me, when you zoom in on the "14 gig" part, compared to the ones with 4 gig, it looks slightly different for some reason, plus no explanation on how its done

It certainly looks suspect. Did a little Photoshop overlay and look at what we have:



Looks like there's some tomfoolery going on here. ;)

It wouldn't be possible. I don't think there are 14 slots in that machine. Can only make use of 8 gig or ram.

Yes, there are only 8 slots in the 1.8GHz and Dual 2.0GHz G5s. The only way to get 14GB, is to use 2GB RAM modules, and I don't think 2GB RAM modules exist. They're damn expensive if they do exist... the RAM would cost more than the G5 PowerMac.

The RAM ALREADY costs more than the tower for 8 gigs. :eek:
