I have a i mac 1GHz PowerPC G4 with 256 MB DDR SDRAM and 80GB running OSX 10.3.9...... this may seem a simple question but i want to know what i can do to upgrade it.... i would not swap my computer for anything in the world....even the new G5's !!! But its over a year old now and ive got a few pennies spare so want to upgrade.....im hopefully gettin Tiger in the next few weeks but want to know what possibilites are open to me to upgrade my hardware so its faster and more on a par with the new macs coming out.....And also this may seem like a stupid question but i dont know the answer so im gonna ask it.....can you upgrade to G5 or not?? Im guessing not.... ....I dont play games on it or not but do run quite a few design programs on it, 'Pro tools', 'Dreamweaver', 'Logic' etc etc ......so what is available to me???
Many thanks for your time and advice

Sadly, you can't put in a G5
What you can do is this:
1) Get 1GB Ram
2) Install Tiger (Clean install)
3) Get a Larger, external Firewire Drive for all those iTunes/Logic Files
And BAM! Will you notice the change!

I think you mean .5GB cause they come with 512MB Standard now. If you just up the RAM in your G4 to like a GB or 1.25GB you'll notice a huge difference. Buy the RAM from Crucial, Kingston, etc. where its cheaper. If you do decide to get a G5, get an iMac if you don't need the extra processing power.
