    You can see all of the system requirements here. Your computer should be able to run them adequately, considering you have the 1GB of RAM and the Dual Core processor. I just wouldn't be expecting any breakneck speeds though.

    That graphics card will not fully accelerate all CoreImage effects so some of the iPhoto adustments will not be available.

    So if I upgrade to a better video card will that be better? If so which one and since I have a dual 533 does that meet the requirement of having to have a 1 ghz g4 to use Imovie and Idvd HD?

    Help

    You only need a 1Ghz CPU for HD video. You will be able to use SD video in iMove HD. iDVD claims to need a 733Mhz CPU flat out. You might get it to work on a dual 533, but it will be border line.

    You would need one of the cards listed here for iPhoto to make all effects/adjustments available. This may also effect some parts of iMove, I'm not sure.

    Basically your machine is border-line in terms of support. Don't expect anything to be fast!

    As it has been stated, you should be able to run iLife '06 on your Power Mac G4 yoshiii , it just will not be overly speedy. :)

    And yes, a new video card would help out- as long as it it one of the ones pointed out by robbieduncan.

    Use Pacifist.

    And don't hijack threads. And actually type your question in so as I can quote it!

    Sorry about that, seems like I clicked the wrong button. ;)
