    check the CPU upgrade manufacturer's website and check to see if they list any for your particular model.

    From the second generation PowerMac G4s through the final ones, they utilized the same interconnect to the motherboard, and all the speed setting were set on the processor's daughter card. I have seen here people upgrading gigabit G4s to Dual 1.4Ghz. with little problem, aside for the memory not being adequate to support the full potential of the processor.

    You should have no problem with it, just make sure you upgrade the memory to maximum before upgrading.
