Ok this is my powermac 9500 that I have trashed due to me getting a Yosemite. It was good, for about 5 minutes after I got it, then I had to mod it. This is what I came up With. For starters I upgraded to abotu 700mb of ram, added a g3 266 upgrade card, and a usb card. I ran OS X on it for a while using X Post Facto, but then I relised how slow it is, thats why I trashed it, not to mention it was 7.5 years old at the time too. And yes, I did take out the usful stuff like the cold cathode and led fan before i got trid of it.
Mobile-2.2Ghtz Core 2 Macbook, 4GB ram, 160GB HDD Server-Dual 1.42 MDD G4, 1GB ram, 4 random hard drives. PC-C2D 2.4Ghtz, Asus Commando, 2Gb ram, 3 hdd's in raid 5, 8800GTS.
Did you cut a hole in the side and use a lexan sheet to make a clear window or just leave it open? I have an 8500 that I'm gonna be screwing around with and it looks like you painted yours black. Got any more pics of the machine before you trashed it?
Sweet looking machine. I too have a 9500 at home with 256MB RAM but no processor upgrade as of yet. Mine is running Debian Linux just fine, albeit a little slow in X. I was able to install a PC PCI 133 ATA card into it and have Debian recognize it immediatly whereas Mac OS will not. It has a 40GB IDE harddrive in it as well. I am looking to mod the case some in the future as well.
I modded the case of an 8500 slightly (meaning, it has been painted - Blue front/back, black sides/top).
