G4 for FACSCalibur

Hello all!

We want to upgrade our FACSCalibur computer from a Power PC to a G4.  I
wanted to play it safe and purchase it through BD, but the powers that
be think that their price is ridiculously inflated, when we could buy a
G4 ourselves for considerably less money.  Has anyone done this, and if
so, did you run into problems?

My concerns are 1.  Installing the card that connects to the cytometer,
2.  Making sure that the operating system is compatible with the
cytometer and CellQuest software,  3.  What does this do to our service
contract coverage, since now the computer is no longer covered?

Any advice would be much appreciated!
