I was going to suggest the exact same thing. Also, If the G5 pulls air through front to back, you may want to baffle your box so that the fans pushing air in at the bottom are below a shelf that your computer would sit on. The "shelf" should be flush (or even sealed) against the back and open at the front. This way, you would pull cool air in near the floor which would get sucked in at the front of your computer and blown out the back where it would rise to the top of the case and be sucked out at the top of the back.
