    G4 -> G5

    sup ya'll

    I have had a G5 at my office for a while, and now it is time to upgrade the house unit. I was wondering if anyone has ever changed the CPU of there editing system? Before i get a lot of "Yeah its easy, just switch the wires out" let me tell you what i have going on.

    I have a triple monitor setup, then i have a 5.1 surround sound,
    Then there is a beta deck, DVC pro deck, dvd/blue ray player/burner preview monitor, a full audio mixer, and video switcher, all wired in to a DA-MAX+ media converter. there is also 3 terabyte external drives. I guess my question to you is, Is there enough hookups on the G5 or did they streamline it and i will have to get some firewire and usb splitters?

    I will be doing this either today or tomorrow. I am Exited!

    well it was not as bad as i thought it was going to be......pretty much just a cpu swap, (pull wires plug in wires) the only thing i had to do was install the DA MAX software.
