Hi, as the title suggests I have a G4 867. I have now done every concievable upgrade to it (1gb ram, 9800pro graphics card and a dvr 107 superdrive) Although I am finding it a bit short in the processor stakes. What I would like to know is, is it possible to buy another 867 chip to make it like a dual model? (if so where from?) and if so is it easy to fit and am I going to notice much difference? Or should I perhaps consider a higher spec g4 (cheaper than a g5) or just save a bit harder and plump for the g5? Just after most bang for me bucks. Any help greatly appreciated. Cheers.

The first tip I'd give you is "Read the Rules." (http://forums.macrumors.com/announcement.php?f=8)

One post in the correct forum is enough, no need to double post.

Not sure about the UK, but [url=www.macsales.com]OWC has just about every processor upgrade that's out there. There are dual chip upgrades too.

And I dont think it's possible to just buy another proc and make it a dual, it's gotta be 2 on one chip, IIRC.
