    Just one question. Why is the text not aliased in the window? Some is, and some is not. Can the 604e support that much memory? Not trying to cause a war, just honest questions.

    The amount of memory is determined by the mobo, not the CPU.

    He turned off text smoothing for small fonts.

    Questions are welcome! :D

    Well...it runs pretty slow. It feels about 60% slower than the G3 450s we have here at work.

    He has an XLR8 G4 card that he runs normally, but it got fried. :rolleyes:

    Radeon 7500 PCI

    He took an old Peforma clone, with a barbones mobo and CPU and upgraded from there:
    G4 upgrade card
    PCI Firewire
    PCI USB
    ATA 133 controller card (otherwise he's stuck w/ onboard SCSI)
