Default Which Mac tower do you recommend?

With Protools 9 TDM, I’m Looking for the best Apple tower to run with the following TDM bits I have been collecting: PCIe cards ( HD Core, HD Accel, and Accel Core). Two Avid 96 I/O 8x8 units, Protools HD 9, and a stack of memory and two cards to expand it with (4GB 2RX4 and some 2GB 2RX4)

I have a 2005 Apple G5 made Feb 2005
PM G5/ DC 2.0 / 512 MB/ 260 GB/ SD/ GF 6600

Or there’s an affordable 2008 2.8 dual Core Model: MA970LL/A that appears to be PCIe based. With all Apple towers do I automatically need an separate PCIe expansion rack unit?

If neither of these are a good option , what would you recommend and why?

I’m also planning to use a Presonus Digimax 8 in preamp with light pipe for drumming mics in one room. What’s the best way to incorporate this unit in a TDM system?

Thanks for help so I can acquire the right pieces to get up and running fast.

Any advice on additional pieces to pick up to make the system work? Well would be most appreciated. I’m not clear if I need a PCI-e expansion box too or not ??

Thanks!
