I want to upgrade my blue and white to a g4 sonnet card.
Which would make it faster?

1. A 500MHz G4 card at 100MHz bus speed
2. A 700MHz G4 card at 66MHz bus speed

also, where can i find a cheap internal hard drive (like 40gb or so) for it?

as for the processors what i can see is that they would both give simular performnce i suppose so go with the one you can get cheaper.

To find a hardrive just go on ebay and search "40gb IDE" and you should find what your looking for or go to www.newegg.com and find a 40gb IDE hard drive.I would reccomend a samsung one as they are quiet.

Sonnet cards arent great. Daystar makes a 600 MHz G4 upgrade card, at 200. You can find it at www.xlr8.com

The bus speed stays at 100 MHz too, and is pretty overclockable.

Though between the 2, Number 1 would be faster, as the 66 MHz bus speed holds down everything else inside of the system.

You can find cheap hard disks at www.newegg.com
