PC motherboard in G5

OverClockers.com offers a that puts an Athlon motherboard in an Apple Power Mac G5 case: "Don't get me wrong, I'm sure G5 is a great computer, but I wanted a Dell for Christmas. I don't have any programs for Apple and didn't feel like waiting for them. I thought about selling it, but my parents would be upset with me. After all, this was a very expensive gift and it meant a lot to them to give to me."

    Stupid is right...

    He should have ebayed the G5, took the 2-3 grand, and then just bought a simliar looking case. It just goes to show you that he didn't do it for the reasons he said.

    (Anyway, how'd you like to be this guys parents, finding out that your expensive gift was basically unwanted and, rather than telling them, he basically just threw it out. Nice guy. Have some balls, dude!)

    well...

    I think we can safely assume that this is an a$$hole! And a pretty stupid one, too.

    Idiot!

    His parents buy him this awesome machine and he ruins it? What kind of world do we live in today. Not only is that just wrong to do but it is also pretty messed up as there are other cases that look similar to the G5 case at http://www.coolermaster.com/

    He ripped...

    ... out dual 2 Ghz chips for one 2.2. Good work King fish. The green lights must make u l33t w1th ur fr1endz.

    Especially when he could have sold the damn thing and made a profit big enough to make a damn good computer. VERY cheesy and I don't believe he's stupid enough not to have known he could sell it for more. He's doing this to piss off the mac community.

    s**** you you little PC weenie, enjoy your now-s*** box.

    WTF?

    What does he mean that he didn't want to wait for the programs? What, he didn't want to spend two days waiting for his stuff to come FedEx? So he spent a week putting an AMD into his case?
