    Hello,

    I bought a PowerMac Gigabit Dual 450 on eBay, great machine.

    With some research into upgrades, graphics card and SATA card, i discovered on macupgrades.co.uk that apparently this machine can address a full 2GB of RAM on OS X. (Four slots)

    I was unaware of this before i bought it, and i'm quite chuffed really as even the models after it can only address 1.5GB of RAM. That's including the quicksilver.

    So if any of you have a Gigabit Ethernet with Dual processor, you might benefit from an extra 512 of RAM.

    Rich.

    May I ask how much you paid for it, with specs?

    The 1.5GB limit is in OS 9. As you stated, OS X can see a full 2GB. Same is true for my AGP G4.

    Hi,

    I paid £185 GBP, Dual 450, 512 RAM, 60GB HD and an SCSI card.

    I have yet to find one cheaper in the UK.

    May i ask why you ask?

    Rich.

    EDIT: i see you were comparing it to the G4 in your sig.

    Great news. Now all I need is a source for cheap 512MB DIMMs.
