I have a 350mhz, 40GB, 256MB, cdrw one that needs a new video card. Would this meet your needs?

Yeah, but can it still run without a video card, or is that necessary for the computer to run?

Unless you are planning to run the computer WITHOUT any display, even so, I am not sure if a Sawooth will run or not without a video card installed.

considering i would have to spend about $130 to get a video card for the sawtooth, according to OWC (http://eshop.macsales.com/MyOWC/Upgrades.cfm?model=89&type=Video&Criteria=&sort=a),
i would have to be getting a REALLY good deal. Unless there is a cheaper place to get a video card?

BTW what happened to the video card?

how about this...

first, mrlproducts is a great member to deal with. because of that, i will make you an offer to get his g4 sold. i have the 16mb 2x agp 128 pulled from a g4/400 system that would snap right into this system.

buy his g4, and i will sell you this card for $10 shipped in the states.

Sounds good, but i would have to get a good price (because i can get a faster processor Sawtooth G4 off Low End Mac (http://www.lowendmac.com/ppc/deals.html)
for $200 or less...
