[G4] If your power supply should die

Thanks for posting the below information.

I'v been waiting for the power supply on my 1999 Sawtooth to die at  
some inconvenient time so decided to see if I could beat it to the  
punch.  I
checked out the atxg4 site, ordered the adapter cable, and paid with  
PayPal. Adapter cable came today. Also today I bought the 430 watt  
Thermaltake P/S at Microcenter for $34.99 (also has $10.00 rebate  
which I'll probably forget to send in).

After about 2 hours of work everything fits perfectly--even the rear  
mounting holes line up. I had to drill one hole in a small bracket  
which secures the front of the P/S to the frame.

The hardest part was stuffing all of the new cables into the case and  
getting it closed without pinching them.

Everything seems to be working at 100% and I can barely hear the thing  

Hope this is of use to others on the list.
