    OK I am building a G4 Powermac and wanting to know do I spend $270 for a GigaDesigns G4/800MHz OR $390 for a GigaDesigns G4/1GHz, is the $120 difference in CPU speed gonna really be noticeable and worth it?

    1GHz will hold you over much longer.

    And gets lots of RAM, and a faster hard drive.
