Hi guys, I have a PPC dual G5 2.0 with 2 internal HD serial ATA (both). Im getting a mac pro today (mac pro 2.66 dual intel xenon) and I was wondering if I can use my drives in the new mac to have more space. Im not trying to have both osx 10.4 and 10.6 on the same machine, just storage. Also, do RAM memory will work?
Thanks guys!

If you check OWC, www.macsales.com you can get an idea of ram prices and internal hard drive prices for that machine.  OWC specializes in Macs and has an outstanding reputation for customer support.
With terra byte drive prices down at $100 or so, it is hard to justify the older, smaller, slower drives...you will just get frustrated
