    Hello all. You have all been very helpful as I have been attempting to get a nice little PM together for myself. Here is where it looks like I will be. A deal is in the works for me to aquire a G4 400Mhz PowerMac Gigabit Ethernet model and I was going to upgrade the CPU and graphics card. What would be the best CPU and graphics to put in the system for $400 to $500? Can anyone direct me to a site that can be trusted and with good prices? I would prefer not use ebay as well. Any opinions or reccomendations would be greatly appreciated as well. Thanks :)

    Make your cpu G4 1 GHz and get a Rad 96/98. Also get another HDD and you will have a kick ass machine.
