    I'm pretty sure this can't be done, but I'll ask a question of any of you who know more about this hardware than I do.

    I have an iBook G4, 14", 1.2 GHz, 1.25 GB RAM, and a measly 32 MB Graphics Card that came installed. Is there any possible way to put in a 64 MB card? If so, how? And which card is recommended?

    Thanks for any light that can be shed on this.

    God bless, Merry Christmas.

    2 words, "NOT POSSIBLE". That should explain it all. :)

    absolutely

    you just have to buy a new logic board with the 64mb chip built in...

    should be $700-$900 and you even gain more processor speed!!

    this will require waiting until the next G4 iBooks are released which support 64mb video cards

    If you want 64MB graphics, get the PowerBook 12". Or wait around 6 months.

    Please provide instructions for removing the Video Card in the iBook and so forth. ;) :) :D
