I need to get my hands on a G4 733mhz OR nicer computer. BUDGET!!! this will be my first apple. i have been a pc guy for eons and have a degree in computer science, im no lamen to ones and zeros. i am a lamen to apple. any PC i have had for the last 7 years i have built. nicer system than anything DELL would sell me for half the price. would BUILDING a G4 be a cheaper route to go?

how are you going to build a G4 machine?

you can't mix and match manufacturers like "PC" hardware.

Building your own G4 will be more expensive than buying a used one....

You could check out ebay for around $600-$700

And depending on what your budget is you could get it new from Apple (well not a 733)
