Jack's post made me think, why go with a G5 2x2, unless you're like 
me and need the RAM, since you're still on a G4 it doesn't sound like 
you are, why not go with either a Mac Mini or a MacBook.  If it 
wasn't for my RAM usage, I'd actually consider a Mac Mini (my RAM 
requirements are part of why I'm not even considering an upgrade 
right now).  Also as he notes, a single processor G5 will seriously 
out perform that G4/2x450Mhz system you're currently running.

Or do you have my other problem, and have some classic Mac software 
that makes it hard to move off of 10.4.x and PPC?  If so you might 
look into emulation to run that software.  This is an issue I need to 
resolve prior to upgrading to 10.5.
