I bought a few upgrades for my PM G4 400 MHz/Jaguar this week and wanted to know what you all recommend for an install order.

I have the following upgrades ready to go:

1) DVR-109 DVD burner
2) OWC G4/1 GHz accelerator card
3) 512 MB ram
4) Panther.

Thoughts?

My opinion:

(1) RAM
(2) Panther
(3) DVD burner
(4) Accelerator

Why?

RAM won't hurt anything and can only help, so I'd install that first. Then Panther, to take advantage of any improvements in drivers, etc.

Update to latest version of Panther, then get the burner to work - should be simple.

Save the accelerator for last, as it's most likely to be problematic, and you'll know everything else works before it's installed.
