    Availability :-)

    Very true.
    Obtaining Apple X800XTs has gotten harder since we adopted them, and they have become more expensive.
    We could use newer cards in PCIe G5s (if adopted), but firmware prompts would no longer be available.

    The whole system will just simplify upgrading.

    And yes, I don't think lumping the e5500 core in with the G3 is fair to it either, its a significantly better core than anything ever used in a G3 level processor. Much closer to a G4, and with some improvements over the e600 core.
