Hard to know IF they will be supported, but iMac ports have already been shown, and a late 2005 G5 port wouldn't be too hard.
I have a G5 Quad with an Apple Radeon X1900GT that runs great. While three cores would be wasted, it would still make a great MorphOS system.
My first move would be installing a Tremor or CMI8738 audio card, a supported network card (because I don't think we have support for the native NIC), and a Radeon HD 4770 video card (for hardware overlay support).
Since all I need is the network and sound card (I have lots of video cards), my total investment would be about $30.
Leaves plenty of room for a license key.
Both systems have been frequently requested. iMacs are cheap. I had to pay $200 for the Quad delivered (a great price as they are going up).
In fact, I had the Apple Radeon 1900 on hand, so I posted the installed Nvidia 7800 on eBay for $79.95.
Total cost outside of some upgrades will be about $120.[ Edited by Jim 27.05.2019 - 14:45 ]
