You can use any slimline (12,5mm) slot in drive. The drive bracket on the G5 iMacs is very special. You'll may have to remove some of the plastic tabs on the front to make it fit, but it works. If you need pictures i can make some and post them, as i'm still twiddeling with a couple of those machines here, at the moment.
