Thinking about upgrading my emac to a 1.25 just bought one on ebay all that need to be done is solder the caps which should be easy enough
total 32 bucks shipped and I know I can handle the caps easy enough if it dun work I'll just make this one a headless eMac but I'd prefer to make a headless emac out of my 800 board.
let me know if anyone knows what I need to do

just for future reference the 3rd generation board is completly compatible with the second generation eMac is a nice upgrade too (radeon 9200 vs radeon 7500) and usb 2.0 ports as well as higher proc speed and faster ddr mem, if you can get a hold of a usb 2.0 board with cap plague replacing the caps is simple if u can use a soldering iron decently Only difference is that thed power button header is just in the same spot on the flipside of the board but there is no worries there fits in just fine. DCB (downconvertor board is completly compatible)
