Heyyy guys, i bought a powermac G4 a few months back and i upgraded the ram and usb ports....also put a new hd in there. But I really wanna make this thing sweet with some more upgrades.

What do you guys suggest I upgrade? Its got around 700 Mhz processor. I can do about any upgrade difficulty so just throw me a few ideas. Thanks

There are upgrades out there for as much as you can pay. Basically, how much money do you want to put into it? http://eshop.macsales.com/search/MaxPower+G4

same i did want to ask , it all depends what you want to spend , you could make it a rocket if you fit a processor upgrade ...up to 1.8 ghz is readyly available but cost quiet a bit but worth every penny as someone else here on the forum can vouch for as it makes your G4 fly :)

If the OP is really lucky, he may be able to find a 2.0Ghz upgrade (which AFAIK, is the fastest G4 that can be fitted - I mean thatd be pretty nifty, my G4 1.67 isnt exactly a slouch).
