OK I am building a G4 Powermac and wanting to know do I spend $270 for a GigaDesigns G4/800MHz OR $390 for a GigaDesigns G4/1GHz, is the $120 difference in CPU speed gonna really be noticeable and worth it?

Luckily...

Speedtests Enclosed (http://www.xlr8yourmac.com/G4CARDS/OWC_G4_133GHz/index.html)

xlr8yourmac did that for me.

1GHz will hold you over much longer.

And gets lots of RAM, and a faster hard drive.
