The Mac version of the 6800 GT would have to be heavily modded to work in a PC. First it is flashed for macs. Second it is AGP Pro x8 1.5v, not many PC motherboards implement AGP Pro. Finally the mac version uses the the special ADC edge connector as an Auxiliary power source, instead of a 4 pin molex, or 6 and 8 pin collectors used today. The mac 6800 GT would have to be modified to work with a different auxiliary power source.
 
I am not going to say that this is impossible, it probably is not worth it in 2014.

My bad forgot about the differences between caards.  Flashing can be hit and miss and pain in the arse in itself.  Sell it on ebay :)

Sell it on eBay and use the proceeds to buy two 2.7 GHz CPU modules for the PowerMac. :)

Perfect? Not really, add an ssd boot drive and your really close though I think. It would boot in 2 seconds! (I think so anyway, my emac 1.25ghz with really old 40gb boot drive boots in 6 seconds)

I have a 64GB Crucial m4 mSATA SSD in my 1.67GHz PowerBook G4 and it boots in four or five seconds.

@ rzookol

Could you post a screen shot showing your systems video specs?

Yeah selling the 6800 GT probably makes sense.  They look like they fetch about half the price of a powermac G5.

though I do agree with you,  the title:  "The Perfect MorphOS Machine (Well Almost) expect for no SDD nor 2.7 Ghz" does not quite sell the thread as effectively.

My PowerMac G5 has X1950Xt 256 MB and it works perfectly (OF+MacosX)


Sorry about keeping this thread alive, but one last question.  What does (OF+MacOSX) mean?

I get the MacOSX part, but not the OF.

OF=OpenFirmware - similar to a PC's bios
